Gypsy Music: Guitar Sitar

Beautiful Music, hopefully for the SL audience I'll put together that guitar/sitar (do you get the connection) music is from the gypsies (ahiguntakayas in Sri Lanka) , i.e the Roma, Romani. Django Reinhardt, Charlie Chaplin was of the Smith family of Romanichals. Michael Caine too is considered to be of Romanichal descent.
For those who read classics, Guy Mannering by Walter Scott, footnotes about Meg Merrilies mentions that gypsy language has similarities to Indian languages.

More about the Romani/Gypsies in the future.
