Roma songs from Jozef Kolarčík ś collection
Languages of publication
The collection of Roma songs by Jozef Kolarčík (1899 – 1961) documents the song repertoire of Roma in eastern Slovakia (regions of Šariš, Gemer) and abroad (Romania) in the ﬁrst half of the 20th century, with the focus on the 1930s and ’40s. It contains manuscript records of Roma songs, coming from 14 localities and recorded from 36 singers. Although the main focus of the collection is on song texts, research identiﬁed 179 records with musical content (tunes, sketches, fragments). Kolarčík’s collection conception was based on ﬁeldwork in the milieu of the Roma communities. His work as a collector overlapped with the ﬁeld of social study, and his results could serve also to raise the level of information in the majority community about the Roma ethnic group.
