Iulian Jantea, accordionist of Gipsy Ensemble Kalinka

° Giurgiu (Romania)

Iulian Jantea started his musical studies as a private pupil of his townsman Victor Karpis. He continued studying the piano and the accordion at the Ciprian Porumbescu Conservatory in Bucharest.
After obtaining his musical diploma in 1973, being a music teacher in the communist Romania was not at all an attractive prospect. Therefore he chose to be an independent performing musician, which resulted in an international career as a soloist. He toured the world with several orchestras including Damian Luca's and Gheorghe Zamfir's.
He lives in Belgium since 1981 and still performs as a soloist with Gipsy Ensemble Kalinka as well as with other bands.
