Music and dance are readily associated with Romani people, and there are countless examples of Romani songs on the internet. The first phase of RomArchive’s Music Section has prioritised materials and narratives that are not otherwise easily accessible to the public. The curators aim to present intriguing examples of Romani creativity as well as Romani influence on mainstream cultures, while questioning certain long-held assumptions.
