Ahaj Devla


Song by Ando Drom. They are part of the vocal tradition of travelling gypsies. Instrumentation is kept to a minimum, and the guitar or mandoline is acompained by everyday objects such as milk cans and spoons.

Ahaj Devla

Ahaj Devla koj odi
Tavel mange bahtaji

Ah roma-dalo…

Muri cini lulugyi
Muri cini lulugyori

Ah roma-dalo…

Ahaj Devla aldinla
Pe kercsima tradela

Ah roma-dalo

Pe kercsima pe bari
Kaj pijen e mol tatyi


About gypsylyrics

This blog is for everyone who loves Roma culture, music and dances. I'm not an expert, just an admirer who wants to share her passion. This blog wouldn't been possible without the Danza Duende project in my life. Thanks to my Gypsy Duende masters to teach me all I know.

  1. Could you post a translation to English? I’m studying Roma culture and sometimes it’s hard to find translations. I’m fascinated with Roma multiple culture, specially the music.
