"A very good idea! I remember that Elez Bislim has a large collection of songs. It is also an excellent way to promote Romani ch'ib! One should have the rights, then add a booklet with translations and maybe also photos or paintings by Romani…"
I think it would be wonderful to have translations too songs.
My father and his brothers and sister did not teach us our language. When they came to Australia they stopped speaking romani. I asked my aunt why, she said it is her fathers…"
"Hello, I would like to invite you to our new group here at "Khetanes": ROMANO THEM TRANSMISSION - with which we want to share the great culture and arts of Roma. Please join this group. Thank you! Viola Razavi"
Today we reached 100 members (invited but not yet signed up over 200, supperters on Facebook over 700). From the tabs and the discussion you see that we plan a special chapter on the Porrajmos. Several artists and filmmakers from this site are involved in researching. I will soon come back to you, so that you can support each other in this important work by uniting the efforts. I am sorry that it takes some time, but there is so much work to be done! Kind regards, Els
Thank you for joining the Media Group. Later today I will start a 4th Group that is mainly about coordination. There are so many of us now that we should share the work a bit in order to improve the quality.
I am sure that your research on prejudice in Press will be very interesting for people like Elena Marushiakova (Studii Romanii) or Ian Hancock (University Texas). If we put some examples on this site, there will be no problem with copyright as long as we mention the source. It often happens that people refer to articles published in this or that paper. With photos and illustrations or cartoons it can be different however. I will ask the many photographers among us and contact you again.
I December we started fundraising, which goes together with contacting famous artists. Therefore I hope that you will be able to convince Yuriy Ivanenko to sign up. Several of us are now involved in recruiting VIPs.
Latest news about the use of the word "tigan" in Romania: it has become a forbidden name! Kind regards, Els
I will draft a small text in which Romanes speaking members are invited to forward ideas for the first event. Besides you, Lukas and also Hristo offered translation help, but Hristo did not join Coordination yet. I will ask him and hope that there will be 3 of 4 of you at least. Then I wil mention your 3,4 names in this letter to be drafted. So, if people need some help, they can first turn to one of you. We need to start working on concrete ideas, because asking for support needs concrete plans. It is good when we all back the ideas. So once more: nais tuke! I will closely follow the translation. Maybe I will learn from it. Romanes is not easy with all the cases and changes. One last request, what about your friend the director of the orchestra? I hope he will sign up.
I understand you have many things to arrange now. I only have one urgent request: soon the notary will finish her text? Can your Dutch friend help me with the translation from Dutch into English. The notary is already quite expensive, so some help in translating is welcome.

Would anyone be interested in signing or editing this letter and having it sent from this group? I just sent this letter to Disney in hopes that it will reach this young commercial artist who is very very popular in the United States and Canada. …Continue
