Everyone loves Romanian music, and there has never been a music video released of great Romanian music that has not been well received. It is true that sometimes they can be bizarre or tacky and tasteless, but that is only because they are so different from what is accepted in America and most of Europe as the norm. The Romanian beat comes from traditional Romanian music and always recalls a mysterious but other worldly sensation which the visual narrative of the video complements with perfection.
Roton just released what has become a highly successful music video of the standard Romanian classic, Morena. The video is set at a resort, and the amazing female singer, Antonia is shown performing in front of an audience. Her words though, are not aimed at the crowd in front of her, but rather at a particular mysterious woman in the audience, “Morena.” The men in the audience, especially Tom Boxer, are in love with beautiful Antonia, but Antonia has her eyes elsewhere.
There are dozens of comments on this video at the site, most of them in Romanian and most of them positive. The critics of the video found the storyline too unbelievable, the acting forced, and the techniques used of poor quality. Go find the video and decide for yourself.
