Kamle dòstǎ, kamle amala!

Mo anav si Edward Dębicki. Madikh so si man 85 berś, i memòria e tragediaqi so ondili ande mo ʒivipe aj and-o ʒivipe me somthemutnenqo aćhol pànda ʒivdi aj na mukhel man te bistrav. Akalaθar, akharav e gevajen akale nazistikane dukhavimatenqe.

Ma mukhen i memòria akale tragediaqi te śukǒl, ma mukhen te aćhol garavdi ućhardi aj i tragèdia te ovel tiknǎrdi! O ćaćipe e Holokaustesqo si sadaj ande amenθe, o Gevaja e manuśikane xarravipnasqe, aj sadaj amen das les jekh imàźa.

Devl!a, brakh sa o sundal!

Biogràfia

Edward Dębicki was born in Kalush (now western Ukraine), 4 March 1935. He is a writer, accordionist and composer. He spent his childhood in a Roma group travelling through Podolia, Volhynia and the area around Vilnius. After the war, he stayed in western Poland. He attended the accordion class at the Gorzów Music School, which he finished in 1953. In 1955, he founded the world famous music theatre “Terno” and in 2002 the Stowarzyszenie Twórców i Przyjaciół Kultury Cygańskiej im. B. Wajs-Papuszy (‘Bronisława-Wajs Society of the Creators and Friends of Gypsy Culture’).

Dębicki has composed almost 200 songs, including “Cygański wóz” (‘Gypsy Wagon’) following the words of Jerzy Ficowski and “Idź swoją drogą” (‘Go your way’), which won the Grand Prix at the Polish Song Festival in Opole in 1995. Dębicki composed the music for films by Władysław Ślesicki, Jan Łomnicki and Ryszard Filipski. He is the author of the poetry collection “Pod gołym niebem” (‘Under the Open Sky’, 1993) and two volumes of memoirs: “Ptak Umarlych” (‘Bird of the Dead’, 2004) and “Wczorajszy ogień” (‘Yesterday’s Fire’, 2012).

He is the initiator and artistic director of “Romanes Dyvesa” – an international meeting of Roma ensembles, which has been held in Gorzów Wielkopolski since 1989. Dębicki has been awarded, among others, the Polonia Restituta Order and the Gloria Artis Gold Medal for Cultural Merits.
