This video documents the penetration of Gypsy culture and music in Africa, specifically within the confines of Egypt. Viewers can travel down the Nile, meeting a wide variety of Gypsy performers not only musicians, but jugglers, dancers, and other entertainers. The group followed moves through the area of the pyramids to their ultimate destination at Karmak. This is a fascinating document of culture that is rapidly disappearing.
