Abstract

Abstract:

The Roma emancipatory and cultural movement in Hungary emerged in the 1970s, one of the most significant spaces being a minor youth club on the outskirts of the capital in the 15th district of Budapest. This article seeks to trace the history of the Rom Som club between 1972 and 1980 and, in parallel, aims to integrate the story of this specific place into the frame of minority heritage studies. By presenting the birth and the activities of the Rom Som band–playing Roma folk music– and the Rom Som journal–publishing literary texts in Romani language–we stress the innovative and progressive character of this gypsy club.
