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.
