Dona Dumitru Siminica

Fervent adepte de la musique lautareasca, le chanteur roumain Dona Dumitru Siminica savait jouer de sa voix et faire se pâmer les dames lorsque sa voix à la limite de l’androgynie s’envolait.
Séduisant aussi bien le public roumain que la communauté tzigane, ses chansons mélancoliques firent succés dans la guingette "La Chirigiu" à Bucarest.
