Gypsy Folklore Camp from Kommandó

The Roma (Gypsy) Folk­lore Camp from Kom­mandó was born with the object­ive to help those inter­ested in get­ting acquain­ted with the cul­ture of Romany (Gypsy) people, as well as, to offer an insight into their pecu­liar and ana­chron­istic way of life and daily existence.
It is a well-​known fact that their folk­lore pre­served not only its own par­tic­u­lar ele­ments, but also the long for­got­ten cus­toms, belief, music and dances of the sur­round­ing ethnical/​national groups. Get­ting famil­iar with their spe­cific world and way of think­ing, hear­ing their music and learn­ing their songs and dances leads to the capa­city of under­stand­ing them easier, to see­ing them from a dif­fer­ent angle, all rep­res­ent­ing a first step towards mutual acceptance.

Dur­ing the one-​week camp the par­ti­cipants can listen to present­a­tions about the Roma (Gypsy) eth­nic group, can learn some of their songs and dances and more import­antly can live together on the camp area with the Roma (Gypsy) per­formers (dan­cers, musi­cians) invited and in the even­ing can talk or dance by the fire.
