Transylvania Phoenix (Phoenix in Romania) is the legendary Romanian rock band formed in 1962 in Timişoara. The group became famous in Romania in the 1970s and after gaining immense popularity in Romania, Phoenix was banned in 1970 by the Romanian Communist Party. The group would become even better known in 1977 after their illegal escape to West Germany, exposing themselves to risks such as their arrest by the Security forces of Ceauşescu. Phoenix means for many Romanians "the Spirit of Freedom."

After 57 years, Phoenix is a symbol of South-East European rock music.
