Calo is the Language of the Gitanos(gpysies) from Spain. Calo is spoken mostly in Andalucia if not only there because most gpysies in Spain are from here and there culture is located here. Calo is a mixture of andulacian accent spanish and romani words.
Some words of Calo are:
Molar(to like as in anything not just humans)
Camelar( to like someone used "te camelo")
Currelar or Currar(to work)
chorar(to steal)
El Yeli(the gitano wedding ceremony)

one word in calo I think of that has arab influences is "Sultan" which means the one in charge or ruler(keep in mind,the gitanos of Spain have an andalucian culture,which has arab origins so there music and accent has arab too)

Gypsies(or the correct term) Romani's are a Nomadic people who were recorded to be in Europe(well atleast in Spain and Portgual) around the 1400's. Gypsies are usually very connected to their culture and it usually plays a huge role in their everyday life. It is said they migrated from North India but no one is positive were they are truly from. The word Gypsy comes from Egyptian because it was beloved they were from Egypt(many of them were also told they were the descendants of Pharoahs which in explains why when I went to Spain a boy told me that he had the blood of kings!).Most gpysy music includes some type of foot work and hand use. Usually its some type of foot tapping work and is very fast.Their wedding traditions are pretty contriversal because of the young marriages(I have only heard of them in Romania) or because of ritual were the woman has to be a virgin(in spain the man can leave you right there if you are not a virgin,they do this whole ritual). Most gpysie men are very good looking unlike most people believe. The dress really nice wether its dolce&gabanna or some nike type of style. They usually were gold chains and gold necklaces and their hair is usually long and they were gelled back pony tails. They are usually tan(natural color!!!)or darker but there are alot of light gypsies too(which always makes me wonder,they are so proud of being pure blood,but its a little weird the fact some of them are light,almost white!). Gypsies have huge weddings that can last 3 days with many tradtions in the wedding.The woman usually wears a big crown and in some countries they marry in red.
Gypsy's in Spain are very cool. They are extremely handsome an its hard not to stare. They have an amazing culture with very emotional music and god given vocal cords! Their foot work is so amazing. I love their huge weddings and their accents are so nice! I wish I could speak calo!
