Transcript of Ethnomusicology: Gypsy Music

Roma (Gypsy) Music What is Roma Music? Rajasthan, India Egypt and Turkey Thank you for your time! Gypsies are traveling people - semi-nomadic.

They are often looked down upon for not having a permanent home.

However, not all gypsies are criminals. The people we refer to as Gypsies originated in northern India.

Somewhere around 1200 A.D.

After an invasion by outsiders, some of the Rajasthani people began migrating. Roma music picked up much of its style and flair while in the Anatolia region. The Balkans, and the Rest of Europe Romani people and music were influenced by and in return influenced the local music.

spread to the rest of
Europe. How to define Roma Music If Roma music does not come from a place, how can we say what is and isn't Roma music?

The term "gypsy" derives
from Egypt. Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary! This is where Romani people begin to be noticed by the wider world.
