I cannot speak about The Fall without speaking of this wonderful child – Catinca Untaru. As small as she is (she’s only 11), she’s definitely making my Romanians in the World category!

Romanians in the World – Costel Busuioc


Category : Romania in the World

Hey guys,

Time for another article in the Romanians in the world series. This time, Costel Busuioc. Bare with me and you’ll find out.

But first, I really don’t know how to write about his story without showing discontent with the way Romania “knows how” to make the best out of its values. I am ashamed, but I am proud in the same time, that this guy made it.

Costel Busuioc is the winner of a very famous Spanish TV show, called Hijos de Babel. Not so long ago, Costel was only a bricklayer who immigrated towards Spain in order to make money to take care for his family. What you don’t know about him is that he has a special gift. His voice, the instrument which got him the biggest prize in the above mentioned contest. He is compared with the great Pavarotti, so…imagine. Something else you don’t know is that he tried to develop his gift in Romania, but he was rejected by the educational system because he didn’t even go to high school. Also, he tried to get sponsorship to take some special courses but there was no one to look at him at that time…the simple builder.

So he took the road towards Spain and worked his ass off to make money, until somebody told him he should participate at Hijos de Babel.

Now that he has won this contest, all Romanian televisions speak about him, and the people who once rejected him, now want him to come to Romania and take the Conservatory courses (hey, what about high school, biatches?), the offer him scholarships and so on and so forth.

See this is why all the other countries in the world are way beyond us, because the “right” people don’t recognize value when they see it. That’s why youngsters take the road towards other countries, because there, be it America, be it England, their work and talent and natural gifts are appreciated and awarded!!!
