Collection of documentation of a lecture by folklorist Carol Silverman who discusses how, in the last twenty years, Balkan "Gypsy" music has exploded in popularity, as thousands of Balkan Roma (the ethnic group frequently referred to as "Gypsies") have emigrated westward due to deteriorating living conditions, and as entrenched stereotypes have arisen amidst deportations and harassment. In this heightened atmosphere of xenophobia, Roma, as Europe's largest minority and its quintessential "other," face the paradox that they are revered for their music yet reviled as people. Focusing on clubs and festivals, this illustrated ethnographic presentation investigates the ramifications of the current scene for Romani performers and non-Romani musicians, producers, audiences and marketers.
Recorded in the Mary Pickford Theater, James Madison Building, Library of Congress on April 21, 2016 from 12:00-1:00 pm.
