Abstract:

The Gypsies or Roma migrated from India about a millennium ago. Due to the complex cultural, social, and historical circumstances they have been shunned and disliked throughout Europe, although they were appreciated as gifted musicians. Since the early Middle Ages, Bohemia, and especially Slovakia, had a significant Romani population. The edict of the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund, the king of Hungary, Bohemia (and Slovakia), encouraged further migration of Gypsies into Western Europe. The Slovak and Hungarian folk music has been significantly influenced by Roma music. The Roma have been influential also in the folk music of other nations, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Spain. Many composers of the Western classical music admired Gypsy musicianship and drew ideas from Gypsy music – Liszt, Brahms, Lehár, Kálmán, Dvo!ák, Janá”ek, Bartók, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Manuel de Falla, and others.

This presentation will introduce the troubled history and the bewildering culture and customs of the Roma, especially as they pertain to Slovakia and former Czechoslovakia. However, the focus will be on Gypsy music, which is the cultural heritage of Roma. What are the key elements and secrets of Gypsy music? What makes it so irresistible and charming? Illustrations, musical excerpts and video samples and will be provided.

Drawing on the paper “Slovak Gypsy Songs, Translation and Performance”, (given at the 14th St. Jerome Translation Conference, University of Alberta, 30-Sept-2016), a few Slovak Gypsy songs (guitar & singing) will be presented, illustrating the underlying linguistic, cultural and musical issues.
