Latcho Drom means "*good luck and good journey*" in Romany.

Latcho Drom is a project which aims to photograph the life and migration of gypsy musicians from countries such as Spain, France, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey and India.

The idea is to capture the essence of the gypsy culture via a journey through space and time, through the culture and above all, the music as a means of expression, as a historical legacy, as a unifying identity, and its best known contribution to the world. From Andalusia to Rajasthan – from where their journey began in the 10th century, this photographic journey aims, through music, to show the reality of 12 million people who still suffer marginalisation and persecution. This project’s aim is to depict how their music, through photography, is not merely a spectacle but also an integral part of their oral culture; a unifying element and way of expression.

THE PROJECT
The journey begins with the Spanish gypsies, passing to the French Manouches*, to the Tsiganies in Central Europe, crossing Turkey to arrive at the root: Rajastan (India)

12 million people (the largest ethnic majority in Europe) who fight for the right to continue to live as they always have; a culture unknown and stigmatised by society.

8 ethnocultures united by a nomadic way of life, and by an ancestral way of conveying their history:: music.

Our final aim is to create a book which we hope to publish and share with those who defend gypsy culture.

WHY I ASK FOR YOUR COLLABORATION
The money I raise will be destined to cover travel expenses in order to finish the project (1,300€) and the publishing of 100 copies of the book (2,500€).

Latcho Drom has taken me to the following countries so far: Spain, France, Bosnia, Macedonia
Countries left to visit: Rumania, Turkey, Rajastan

    Hello Jolie, Thank you for your interest. The project is finished and I'm just finishing the book. I have organised an event in Barcelona on the 7th November to distribute the book then. If you can't make it, you should receive your copy soon after that. Thanks again for your support!

    Dear,
    I contributed to this publication because I'm very touched by the life of Roma worldwide. I saw €30 go off my account, but I didn't receive a publication yet, do I still have to be patient or did something go wrong during sending it by post?

#01 / Latcho Drom

Latcho Drom es un proyecto personal, este tipo de sueños se tienen que realizar desde interior, desde las entrañas y para mi el poder realizar este viaje hasta el origen de la cultura gitana, es una manera de demostrar mi admiración y respeto por esta comunidad.
A todos los que participeis en este proyecto os quiero agradecer vuestra contribución, no sé si lo lograremos o no, pero hay que intentarlo.
