Celebrating Roma culture in Scotland on International Roma Day

On 8 April, the Roma gypsy community in Scotland celebrate a day dedicated to their culture and way of life. Music and song is part of every day Roma life, with children learning to play a variety of instruments from as early as three years old.
Young Roma people from Govanhill in Glasgow travel to Castlemilk Youth Complex every week to play traditional Roma songs and to create rap music in their native Slovakian language. Amazingly, all the musicians are self-taught and don't restrict themselves to one instrument, moving from drums, to guitar, to keyboard.
