About Timpuri Noi

During the 1980s, underground music served as a form of political rebellion, carrying coded messages against oppressive regimes and their social and cultural policies. Now, the same music rings out as a celebration of a successful movement for change.

The name Timpuri Noi (Modern Times) derives from a cliché of the period: its literal meaning is "New Times" (in the sense of "New Age"), used to signify Marxist Socialism. The tongue-in-cheek reference is also associated with the Bucharest metro station of the same name. The name is also the Romanian translation of Modern Times, the title for Charles Chaplin's classic 1936 film.

With their songs “Perfect”, “Becule” (You, Light Bulb) and “Drumul spre lumina” (The Road to Light) – 1984 - 1989, their subtle, subversive lyrics provoked Communist authorities, getting them banned from public radio or TV stations and drawing the surveillance of the Romanian Secret Services. The band continued its politically engaged songwriting, releasing in the ‘90s songs depicting the social and economic changes in post-revolutionary Romania: “Victoria” (The Victory), “N-ATO” (a word pun for NATO), and “Emigrant USA”. Timpuri Noi opened for bands like Ian Gillan, Uriah Heep, Scorpions, Jethro Tull, Iron Maiden, Joe Cocker and Rod Stewart.

Being in the spotlight for more than 25 years, one can safely say the band has boldly spoken out for two, even three, generations of Romanian fans.
