Romani music (often referred to as Gypsy or Gypsy music, which is considered a derogatory term is the music of the Romani people, who have their origins in Northern India, but today live mostly in Europe.

Historically nomadic, though now largely settled, the Romani people have long acted as entertainers and tradesman. In many of the places Romanies live they have become to known as musicians. The wide distances traveled have introduced a multitude of influences, starting with Indian roots and adding elements of Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Slavic, Romanian, German, Dutch, French, Spanish and even Jewish musical forms.

It is difficult to define the parameters of a unified Romani musical style, as there are many differences in melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and formal structures from region to region. Lyrics to Romani songs are often sung in one or more dialects of the Romani language, and dance frequently accompanies Romani music performance.

The quintessentially Spanish flamenco is to a very large extent the music (and dance, or indeed the culture) of the Romani people of Andalusia.

Apart from Romani music for local use, in Eastern Europe a separate Romani music originated for entertainment in restaurants and at parties and celebrations. This music drew its themes from Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, Polish and other sources of Romani origin, but was more sophisticated and became enormously popular in places like Budapest and Vienna. Later on, it gained popularity in Western Europe, where many Romani orchestras were active, playing sophisticated melodies of East European origin. Probably the most influential Romani musician was Django Reinhardt (1910-1953)
