“Romani music” summer school is a one-week course organized in the framework of the Khamoro Romani
Festival (May 29 – June 4, 2022), at the Faculty of Humanities, Charles University, Prague, and intended for
international university students.
In the morning lectures, the students will become acquainted with the main areas in which Roma participated in
the creation of distinctive music styles with a primary focus on the music of the Roma in Central Europe. Besides,
we will discuss the most important topics of the previous years: representation of Roma through music, Romani
music and emotions, Romani music and collective memory, etc. Students will study not only with local and
international ethnomusicologists specializing in Romani music (prof. Zuzana Jurková from Charles University,
Prague, prof. Filippo Bonini Baraldi from Lisboa), but also with organizers of the festival, and the Romani
musicians themselves. Students will also take part in workshops with Khamoro festival participants, and attend
evening festival concerts in the evenings. The course will be conducted in English.
