Arthur’s Day, a celebration in tribute to Arthur Guinness, is on 27 September, and Guinness are encouraging drinkers to paint the town black. The brilliant ‘Balkan Brass’ track featured in the advert may be familiar to TV Ad Music readers, as it was used in an Ikea advert in summer 2011. The song is called Asfalt Tango, and it’s by Fanfare Ciocarlia, a 12-piece band from a tiny village (Zece Prajini, population: 400) in northeastern Romania. Asfalt Tango is available to download from iTunes.
