Subject: RE: Help: Jew's Harp question!
The way I heard it was that the gyp movement was supposed to be a fighting movement, two people circling like fighters and Gypsies were renowned for fighting.

Incidentally, an acquaintance of mine is a British representative on the International Gypsy Council ( I think it's still called that although it represents other travellers)and she tells me that in addition to the Roma are the Sinti mainly in Germany.
