Music and society are two inextricably linked meanings.

This is proven by antiquity as with the evolution of things the two concepts influenced each other, evolved, and progressed together. They are two meanings that develop accordingly. In other words, there is a two-way relationship between them, that is, as much as music is influenced by social events, it in turn affects the perceptions of a people or a category of persons regarding the rules of ethics and law. As music is one of the dominant fields of art in the prevailing society, in combination with the marginalization of the Roma, will promote their contribution to the music sector, empower them and develop their prospects by promoting their musical talent. It is important to mention that the Roma as a nomadic people had and have migrated throughout the European continent influencing the peoples with their music and which has been the basis for the evolution of local music.
