Romani culture

The Gábor in
Transylvania, Romania

The Gábor belong to the wide spectrum of Romani-speaking ethnic groups in Transylvania. Beyond their home region around the city of Tîrgu Mureş, they have been eco­nomically embedded and recognised as craftsmen and tradesmen for many generations. Over time they have developed their own specific Romani culture. While this entails the passing down of tradi­tional characteristics from one generation to the next, external factors bring visible changes to this culture.
