Jewish klezmer vs Gypsy music

There are similarities between klezmer and Roma (Gypsy) music, and fusions of the two have become very popular in recent years. There are several reasons why Jewish klezmer and Gypsy music share common elements and blend together well.

Like the Jews, the Gypsy people are an ancient ethnicity that did not originate in Europe; they are believed to be people of the Indian subcontinent who have migrated through the Near East into Europe. Also like the Jews, the Gypsy people were a separate minority group generally living on the margins of the societies of the countries in which they lived.
Both groups maintained distinct cultural identities despite being widely scattered, possessed no country or homeland of their own, and were frequent targets of expulsions, discrimination, and persecution. Like klezmer, Gypsy music is likely traditional religious Roma songs combined with the music of host countries, and influenced by Gypsy status as a wandering and often marginalized minority. Despite of all this, the music of both groups is often joyful and exemplifies the energy and fire of life and of living.

Today is International Roma day

Today in Roma Day Observance….
Gypsy culture make us look in a mirror to all immigrants and remind us that regardless of our background or religion most of us share a common history.

This is the trailer of the just released movie in the US directed by Tony Gatlif: Korkoro.
Committed Gypsy culture chronicler Tony Gatlif (very famous for his movie Latcho Drom) dramatizes the TRUE story of a migrant family in Nazi- occupied France.

A movie that I will go watch… And is currently being shown at the Cinema Village.
