This chapter describes the musical gypsy on the global music platform, and also explains that global media accessibility and transnational mobility do not automatically disturb international politics. It further explores the rise of the “Roma,” a transnational musical entertainment group, and focuses on the examples related to this concept, which play an important role in localizing the global pop music in Europe and in the Middle East. The main aim of the chapter is to examine the requirement to interconnect media, cultural studies, and social sciences in discussing postcommunist, post-Cold War transformations of ethnicity. The Roma musical performances and several related case studies explored throughout the chapter help in understanding the world music transformations.

Keywords:   musical gypsy, global music platform, global media accessibility, transnational mobility, Roma musical entertainment, global pop music
