Roumaniana is a suite for wind orchestra (symphonic wind orchestra) by the Belgian composer Jean Absil. In the suite Roumaniana you can hear successively :

Songs of Brasov
In this work the composer has used the folklore of the Romanian communities Craiova, Caracal, Suceava, Pascani, Resini and Banaat.
The final piece of the suite is a folk festival that starts with a dance, called Sirba, and continues with a very fast dance that requires great virtuosity, characteristic of the Romanian gypsy orchestras.
