Abstract

The first two parts of this paper present the three ethnic subgroups of the Boyash Gypsies speaking Romanian. They give a sketch of their traditional social organization and its dissolution after World War II. The third part highlights the stylistic groups of the folk music of a selected subgroup, the Ard'elans. Part Four affords a glimpse of the processes launched by the political change of1989: the Boyashes, having lived previously mostly isolated from the other two Gypsy groups of Hungary, began to draw closer to them and consciously profess their "Roma" identity in the Gypsy folklore movement.
