Weasel Books Origins: Traveller and Romany influence on Trad (41) RE: Origins: Traveller and Romany influence on Trad 19 Dec 04


I thought the Muzsikas CD was Jewish music from the Carpathians. Calling it Kleizmer is like saying Bluegrass is traditional Scots/Irish music. My ancestors (Jewish) happened to come from that same area BTW.


I think Roma in this context means Balkan, just as in Arabic and Turkish cultures the Byzantine lands were Rum. More likely than it reffering to Italy.

If anyone is interested I have a couple of old photos of Gypsies from Arab lands.
