on the french forum of gypsyjazz (guitarejazzmanouche), the idea of gathering the songs in romanes and in french we can hear in gypsy jazz arose (for example, on Schnuckenack or Bamboula Ferret recordings)
I have begun to look for information about all this stuff and a first draft is now available. Since I use some information from Djangobook forum, may be some of you could be interested in this book of songs.
The idea is for each song to have Composer (music and lyrics), interesting performances of the song, lyrics, translation (in French, sorry...), chords and the melody (not available yet...).
The book is divided in two parts : songs in romanes, russian, rumanian, deutsch... and songs in french.
There are some flaws and things I will add and correct in next days but if you want to have a look at this book... I'll be glad to receive your comments, suggestions... and the missing information you may have.
For information, the main flaw is related to the spelling of the sinti songs which varies according to the source I used. I will correct this and try to use only one spelling.
The book is enclosed at the end of the message, but if there is a problem, this another link
