Could someone expand this article to include the impact Roma music has had on classical music? Liszt wrote a whole book about Hungarian Gypsy music, Bartok and many others were influenced by it, many Hungarian Roma were sent to study music in Vienna ... I don't know much, but I think it is clear Roma music has had a considerable influence on the development of Western classical music / composition, I think it also introduced the concept of the "virtuoso" to that tradition ... and I would love to know more about it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Raviolix (talk • contribs) 16:06, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Could someone:))))) knowledgeable update this article to include information on the theoretical aspects of the music, such as the scales, rhythms and chord changes common in the music? PipOC 19:33, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
I would like to see this too, a musical look at Romani music. Especially the improvisational aspects of Romani music. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:59, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Roma version of Ghatam?
I saw an Indian percussion ensemble playing recently and the group was led by someone playing the ghatam. I was particularly struck by the similarity of the sound to an instrument I've seen played by Roma groups in Slovakia and Hungary, which I can best describe as an aluminium milk-churn. Is there a particular name for this instrument? Anyone have any ideas on whether this is an improvised ghatam or actually a instrument crafted from metal for the same kind of effect?

The "Wandering musicians in the wine gardens of Transylvania" are not Roma!
There is a picture in the article: "Wandering musicians in the wine gardens of Transylvania (Pennell, 1893)". How exactly did this picture end up in this article? Does anyone have any proof that those musicians are Romani musicians? Unless there is proof for this, the picture should be removed! I am absolutely positive by the clothes they are wearing that those people are not Roma! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:17, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
