hAmaro Fest. 2023
hAmaro fest. celebrates the beauty of Romani-(Gypsy)-India Texas music and culture.
We reunite the Romani and Indian people and cultures through the arts, creating workshops, concerts and educational programs
The fest focuses on educating the genearl public about the history of the Romani people whose history and heritage goes way back to India from where their migrations began around the 10th century, arriving in Europe in the late 14th century. The Romani people were mistaken for being from Egypt by the Europeans from where the term "Gypsy" comes from. There were many other myths and misbeliefs over the centuries that lead to severe persecutions of the Romani people including slavery in the Balkans and holocaust under the Nazi.
