РРОМАНИ БУТИ / ŘOMANÍ BUTÍ

Эк дата мурро дад андяс
Бути бари кхэрэ,
Бути сас те ғаносарас
Ле иштуря барэ.

Ek dáta muřó dad andjás
Butí barí kheré,
Butí sas te hanosarás
Le íšuturja baré.

Букуримаста ся аме
Хуклям тхай ви кхэлдям,
Ся ле шейа тхай в’ел шяве
Интял-ордал нашлям.

Bukurimásta sja amé
Xukljám thaj vi kheldjám,
Sja le šejá thaj vel šavé
Intjál-ordál našljám.

Пала пайесте кон нашляс?
О Гранчя тхай Бакро,
Ғай ви о Лайош ляс, гэляс,
Макар сас цынорро.

Pála pajéste kon našljás?
O Gránča thaj Bakró,
Haj vi o Lájoš ljas, geljás,
Mákar sas
cinořó.

Анел кишай о Бакалой
О ишто те морэл.
Ғай кай э Сима? Кай-ла вой?
Эл кашт шукэ анел.

Anél kišáj o Bakalój
O íšto te morél.
Haj kaj e Síma? Káj-la voj?
El kašt šuké anél.

Эл цыгли ле лоле андям,
Пе пхув теле тходям.
Мишто-мишто хурдисардям
Ғай инкэ личярдям.

El cígli le lole andjám,
Pe phuv telé thodjám.
Mištó-mištó xurdisardjám
Haj ínke ličardjám.

Арчичи сар о чил билал,
О тате дырза ляс,
Дырзаса дяс интял-ордал,
Шукар ғаносардяс.

Arčíči sar o čil bilál,
O táte dírza ljas,
Dirzása djas intjál-ordál,
Š
ukár hanosardjás.

О ишто лям теле, морас,
Т’ ял мундро, те стрэфял.
Э рромаи бути кэрас,
Тхув пал’ аменде жял! 

O íšto ljam telé, morás,
T’ jal múndro, te strefjál.
E řomají butí kerás,
Thuv pal’ aménde žal!

“The wooden plate “ (in Romani)

Michael Demetri comes from Sweden where he teaches in Roma cultural classes. He tells the story of the wooden plate in Kalderash dialect. The story was recorded during the Annual Meeting of the Gypsy Lore Society in Graz in September 2011.

Occupations

Characteristic features of traditional Roma professions are high proportions of flexibility and independence. In contrast to dependent wage workers they sell services and trade to the majority population. Contact with the Gadže is limited to purely economic interest. This independence is guaranteed by carrying out the professions together in economic communities.

Irrespective of whether the group leads a settled or nomadic life, in a traditional Roma community all members have the same occupation – provided that the conditions allow it. Comparable with the Indian caste society there is a relation between the group and the profession. Also those groups who have been forced to assimilate try to maintain these structures to a smaller extent.

The relevance of the traditional professions for the ethnic identity of the respective group is further emphasized by the fact that many Roma groups name themselves after their main occupation:

Romani Ethnic Groups in Post-Soviet Era Russia.

Article by Nikolai Bessonov
Translation by Alisa Didkovsky

 

Since the majority of Russians have a weak understanding of what kinds of Romanies live on the former USSR territories, I will talk about a few ethnic groups. We will begin with the fact that there is not just one kind of Romani people.  This means there are many groups (which the Romanies themselves sometimes call “natsiyi (nations)”).  They differ greatly from one another with language, work, and religious practice.  It can even be at times that one Romani group will not consider another as Romani.  I bring my article to your attention, written in the magazine National Geographic Russia (the full author’s version of the text).
