A unique touring festival, Gypsy Caravan: A Celebration of Rroma Music and Dance, will perform at Zellerbach Hall on Saturday, March 13 at 8 p.m.

For the last 2,000 years, the Rroma people (gypsies) have wandered the world from India to the Middle East and across Europe. Along the way, their rich and varied culture has influenced the artistry of their adopted countries -- from Hungarian violin composition to flamenco of southern Spain -- yet the Rroms have maintained their own creative voice.

Gypsy Caravan features more than 40 performers showcasing the inventiveness, power, haunting beauty and sheer joy of Rroma traditions.

For tickets, at $14, $20 and $26, call Cal Performances at 642-9988. Noah Berger photo.
