(Title in Roma language: Mre Devlesqe gilavav me. E Rromenqero bagaipen, basalipen aj identiteta dr-o miskaipen e pokaime khangerenqere). The article refers to the conversion of Gypsies in Pentecostal societies. Since the day French pastor Clement Le Cossec converted the Manush Gypsies in the 1950s, the Pentecostal movement has gained popularity among Roma in Europe and both Americas. The most appealing Pentecostal idea for the Gypsies is the necessity to overcome ethnic barriers. Converted Roma people gain the opportunity to become members of society without being labeled as outcasts, or pushed away as a result of ethnic bias. Polish peculiarity of the problem has been shown on the example of a Gypsy community in Bystrzyca Klodzka, made up of Carpathian Gypsies. The author describes the community through Gypsy religious music, a means of expressing their religious and ethnic identity through unique musical instruments, style and performance.
