Flamboyant gypsies

TE TRAIS, TE AVES BAHTALO!

 

Gypsies have been traveling for hundreds of years in a seemingly endless journey. They mirrored the habits, the traits and culture of all the people they have mingled with and still they managed to preserve unbroken in their primordial world, tradition and identity. It is far more reachable for travelers to go the four corners of the world than to enter into a universe so close and yet so tightly sealed to those outside. You can find them everywhere and you may think you know everything there is to know about them, either in a negative light presented in the news bulletins or excessively idealized in romantic and exotic movies.

 

But who are they really? We have managed to lift that veil and invite you to enter the stage of real life into a real Romanian gypsy community. Come and explore and, should you choose to, learn their traditional crafts! Join us for a gypsy tribunal where the wisdom of the tradition bearing elders is acknowledged and respected. Let yourself swept away by the charm of a warm fire surrounded by old stories and violin notes. Experience an insider view for fundamental events in the community’s life such as weddings baptisms and parties. We challenge you to come and live, eat, sing and dance among gypsies.
