Flamenco en Badajoz (Tony Gatlif), Latcho Drom
Algerian-born (with Roma roots), Tony Gatlif and a small team filmed gypsies (Roma) beginning at their presumed genesis in India, following migrations through Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France, and Spain. (These are not the only countries with Roma populations, but just those in this film.) Some of M. Gatlif's wonderful films are available at: http://www.amazon.com/ Some of the older films are intermittently available. Latcho Drom means "safe journey" in Romany, This scene was filmed in Badajoz, with many of the Amaya family singing as well as La Caita The cinematography is awesome, the music, dance, and daily activities of the Roma draw you into a film that has very little dialogue. And none is needed!

Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra - Djelem Djelem
Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra (BGKO) was a project founded by clarinetist Robindro Nikolic and accordionist Mattia Schirosa.

The last concert of BGKO was performed at Vienna KLEZMORE festival on the 8th of November 2015. Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra were Sandra Sangiao (Vocals - Catalunya) Robindro Nikolic (Clarinet - Serbia/India) Mattia Schirosa (Accordeon - Italy) Julien Chanal (Guitar - France) Ivan Kovacevic (Double Bass - Serbia) Stelios Togias (Percussion - Greece) Vroni Schnattinger (Violin - Germany) This song is a tribute to one of the greatest Romani songs, sung by some of the greatest singers of all times. In some way , it is our inspiration for entering into the mystical world of the gipsies. Lyrics are written by Žarko Jovanović in Romani language, in the year 1949, but the melody already existed among Romani people of Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania. Some say that the original melody was of a love song and that it was known during the twenties of the last century and that Žarko Jovanović adopted it and wrote lyrics of his own dedicated to Roma people. It tells about the atrocities they suffered during World War II, and about the rise of Roma people that is about to come. It was adopted as the Romani national anthem at the first world congress of Roma people in 1971 in London.
