(Title in Roma language: E Rromenqeri muzika and-i Polska. Analiza e xaingenqerithaj akanautni situacia e rodlarimatenqeri). The source documentation and research on music of the Polish Gypsies have relatively short tradition and are limited to only few papers. Among the written sources, the most extensive collection of Gypsy songs texts is work by Izydor Kopernicki 'Textes tsiganes, contes et po├ęsies'. Also Jerzy Ficowski placed a lot of songs texts in his publications. The first transcriptions and analysis of the melody of Gypsy songs were included in the master's thesis of Ewa Kafel, titled 'Songs of Gypsies of Czarna Gora near Bukowina Tatrzanska '. Transcriptions of songs by Teresa Mirga and score of works by Edward Debicki have been included in the master's thesis of the author of this article. In addition Agnieszka J. Kowarska was dealing with the problems of Gypsy dances in Poland. Among the phonographic sources the best documented traditional Gypsy repertoire are the field recordings by the Hungarian ethnomusicologist Katalin Kovalcsik, who in 1986 was conducting her research in the south of Poland. Within the context of the limited research undertaken, the musical repertoire of the Carpathian Gypsies has been well documented. However our knowledge about traditions of Lovara and Kalderash is even less.
