Summary
This book is about the Gypsies of Andalusia, a region in southern Spain. The choice of Andalusia was based on the fact that it has been regarded throughout the centuries as the dominant Gypsy "stronghold" in Spain. Accordingly, the culture of its Gypsy inhabitants may be considered to be representative of Spanish sedentary Gypsies in general, albeit increased tourism has operated greatly to accelerate the acculturative process in the decade spanned by the field studies reported in this work. Our focus is principally on the sedentary Gypsies of Granada, some of whom have continued to occupy the cave dwellings of Granada's Sacro Monte (Sacred Mountain) for more than five centuries. Descendants of the Gypsy tribes who settled in Andalusia, and who adapted themselves to Andalusian civilization, these Gypsies (gitanos) are differentiated from other Gypsy inhabitants of southern Spain primarily in that they are not nomadic. In addition, many of our informants are Gypsies engaged in the performing flamenco arts, a fact which distinguishes them occupationally and economically from other sedentary Gypsies. Although the current popularity of flamenco music has drawn the best of the dancers, singers, and guiatists away from the Sacro Monte, those who remain continue, sometimes under extreme duress, to perpetuate their traditional ways of life. - Overview
