Romani folklore collection of Jānis Leimanis
Description

Romani folklore

The most outstanding collection of Latvian Romani material - 500 folklore units in 75 volumes - was collected by Jānis (Bernis) Leimanis (1886-1950) in 1920-30's. Leimanis' manuscript is particular for two reasons - it widely represents less known Romani folklore and all of the materials are supplied with Latvian translation.

The manuscript starts with a long fairy-tale Bimbars and Bille, as told by Ansis Zavickis in 1902 in the Kuldīga district. Leimanis was obviously well educated because the language of the translation is brilliant and rich. The material ends in "mortal" words which are now fading out of the Romani language.

Archives of Latvian Folklore holds also Romani folklore, collected from Latvian children.
