Romani diaspora by country
Romani people in Egypt speak the Romani language. They migrated to the territory of the present day Egypt from South Asia, particularly from India, during the Roman Egypt times and mixed with the local Egyptians population in the South for more than 2000 years. Romani people self-segregated themselves for centuries from the dominant culture of Egypt, who view Romani as dishonorable though clever. Historically, Romani in Egypt have provided musical entertainment at weddings and other celebrations, singing Egyptian traditional songs in return for money. The Romani people in Egypt include subgroups like Nawar, Halebi and Ghagar.
