Tour organized by---and proceeds go to--- Roma advocacy organization, Voice of Roma.

Romani Routes is a project of Voice of Roma, a nonprofit organization based in Sebastopol, California. The aim of Romani Routes is to present the virtuosity of Romani musicians and the richness and depth of Romani music in a way that counteracts the hype of the mythologized "Gypsy". Romani Routes also seeks to lead the way against exploitation of Romani musicians by ensuring connections among the musicians, Romani culture, and the cause of Romani rights.
