Language is Flowing III

Some claim that music is the universal language. In this case, it certainly was. None of the five people in this photo speak the same language at home. But they all sang together with gusto.
Left to right:  Romanian Romany; Bulgarian Romany; Romanian Moldovan; Moldovan Romany; English-speaking Australian.

Song:  tune known to many Christian Romany; Romani words close enough in all three dialects to sing along.

Location: recent Rroma Workers Network conference in Hungarian-speaking part of Romania.
