Pavel Stratan revine la Washington pentru un concert extraordinar care va include atât piese din nou lansatul său album Totu-i despre viață cât și piese din repertoriul lui atât de bine cunoscut publicului din România și din Republica Moldova. Evenimentul va avea loc duminică, 17 decembrie începând cu ora 17 la etajul trei al restaurantului Mari Vanna (1141 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20036). Originar din Republica Moldova, Pavel Stratan a devenit cunoscut în România odată cu trupa Planeta Moldova având instantaneu un impact fantastic asupra publicului, datorită în primul rând vocabularului specific moldovenesc și neobișnuit pentru români dar și jocurilor de cuvinte inovative și inedite. Fiecare piesă spune o poveste plină de umor și de tâlc, o poveste reală din biografia cântautorului, lucru întrutotul inedit în peisajul muzical. Muzica lui se mai remarcă și prin crâmpeie de folk cu motive tradiționale dar și cu pop, hip-hop etc. Albumul său de debut Amintiri din copilărie s-a vândut “ca pâinea caldă” în prima zi de lansare la București cu peste 7.000 de discuri. La scurt timp, Pavel Stratan a reușit să dețină întâietatea în topul vânzărilor cu peste 50 mii de exemplare vândute. Acest prim album a fost urmat de încă trei cu acelați nume și după o pauză de 6 ani, iată că acum el revine în 2017 cu noul album Totu-i despre viață. Restaurant Mari Vanna, un restaurant cu specific rusesc, va servi un meniu românesc în seara concertului. Consum minim de persoană de $20. Locurile sunt LIMITATE și vor fi disponibile după regula primului venit primul așezat. Pentru informații suplimentare îl puteți contacta pe Bogdan la 202.531.8776. _____________ Pavel Stratan is coming back to Washington, DC for a new concert featuring songs from his recently released album It's all about life (Totu-i despre viață) but also many of the songs which made him famous in Romania and the Republic of Moldova. The event will take place on Sunday, December 17 starting at 5:00 pm and will be hosted on the third floor of the Mari Vanna Restaurant (1141 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20036).Originally from the Republic of Moldova, Pavel Stratan became known in Romania with the band Planet Moldova. His instant impact on the public was mainly due to his specific Moldovan accent and vocabulary which most Romanian listeners found unusual and to his creative and original word play. Listening to his songs one can hear folk and traditional music, pop, hip-hop, and other styles. Each song tells a story full of humor and allegory, a true story inspired from the songwriter’s own biography, something entirely unique in the musical landscape. His debut album Childhood Memories (Amintiri din copilărie) sold over 7,000 copies on the day of release in Bucharest. Shortly thereafter, Pavel Stratan’s albums were best sellers with over 50,000 copies sold. This first album was followed by three more with the same name, and now, after a six year break he is back in 2017 with his latest album It's all about life (Totu-i despre viață).Mari Vanna, a Russian restaurant, will be serving a Romanian menu on the night of the concert. Minimum consumption per person $20. Seating is VERY LIMITED and will be available on a first come first served basis. For info please contact Bogdan at 202.531.8776.

Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello need a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event. This Holiday season The Poetry Brothel is bringing back its Old Timey Office Holiday Party! That's right, we're gonna throw the photocopier up on the stage, and if you don't get your butt up there and sing a carol young man... This event will feature house band The Bitter Dose Combo, burlesque dancers Puss N Boots & Mademoiselle Estelle, sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, a slew of poetry whores, and, of course, your hosts Mister Charley, The Madame, and Tennesee Pink. Doors open at 7:30pm; show starts at 8pm. Themed costumes and/or evening wear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
