Header of gitanos



Gitanos a.k.a. The Romani people in Spain are generally known as gitanos. Spanish Romanies belong to the Iberian Kale group, with smaller populations in Portugal, in southern France. They tend to speak Caló, which basically encompasses a range of regional dialects of Spanish with numerous Romani loan words and mannerisms. Nevertheless, to varying degrees, they identify with Andalusian culture and music due to the large gitano population present in that region. Data on ethnicity is not collected in Spain, although the Government's statistical agency CIS estimated in 2007 that the number of Gitanos present in Spain is probably around one million.
