Fraţii Advahov ( Brothers Advahov) stands for the two Moldovan musicians Vitalie Advahov (born January 18, 1978) and Vasile (born April 26, 1979 in Cahul, Soviet Union). The two brothers jointly lead an orchestra known for folk music.
Vitalie and Vasile played in an orchestra when they were still at school and took part in music competitions. After high school, the two went to the Academy for Music, Theater and Fine Arts in Chisinau and studied accordion and violin. They finished their training and at first didn’t know what to do. They met up with other former students to make music, which resulted in the “Orchestra Fraților Advahov” in 2003.
The orchestra gained national fame and the two brothers were awarded the title “Maeștri în Artă” by President Vladimir Voronin in 2007 — followed in 2016 by President Nicolae Timofti with the award Ștefan cel Mare.
