Popicu runs a traditional music group called Iza. He works with the best musicians and dancers, peasants and shepherds in Maramures. Iza is now famous in Romania, and champions the idea that folk music and dance are fundamental to human happiness, and everything they do is aimed at keeping these old traditions fresh and meaningful. At the same time, Popicu and his wife put a lot of effort into convincing their fellow Maramureseni to treasure their traditional beliefs. Their belief in the value of song and dance permeates every aspect of the Pops’ lives. Committed to their careers, they are the living proof that this kind of cultural enterprise can bring real social and economic benefits, helping to stem the flow of youngsters who feel the need to leave home and find work abroad.
