Ljiljana Petrovic - Batler - The Soul of the Roma Café Song

Her biggest school was the cafeteria. She was born in Belgrade on December 14, 1944 in an artistic family.

His first appearance was at the age of 12 when he replaced his sick mother. She was very early and became a mother.

"The tragedy of the Roma people is that we ripen very early. I became the mother of 14 and my husband was 16 years old. "

Although at one time she attended a music school, her biggest school was as she said - the cafe. In spite of the enormous popularity, she experienced discrimination on many occasions.

 - They told me: "What does this Roma woman do on television every day?" The Roma have always been disrespectful and we are guilty of this because we allowed it.
In the late 80's when he felt that he would have a war he gathered his three children and fled with one bag in Germany

There he started singing after Roma weddings to survive and exist.
At the same time he worked hard physical work, such as cleaning bathrooms, etc., which was also noticed on the documentary film dedicated to her and made by the BBC.

Johnny Depp Embraces His Gypsy Heart in Romania as He Meets with Romany Musician Pals

Johnny Depp took some time out from touring with the Hollywood Vampires to immerse himself deep in Romanian culture. 

Depp – who visited "Dracula's Castle" high in the Transylvanian hills with Tim Burton and bandmate Alice Cooper – dropped in on Gypsy musicians Ionita and Viorica Din Clejani and their daughter, singer Marguerita. 

The family hails from the village of Clejani, 25 miles south of the Romanian capital Bucharest, and are leading figures in the Romany music scene. 

Ionita is also an old Depp friend, having appeared and performed with Romany band Taraf de Haidouks in the actor's 2000 film The Man Who Cried, where he was featured playing the accordion in a scene with Christina Ricci. 

Depp has recalled how he arrived for the first day on the movie's set and found the band set up and playing some songs to welcome him. He says he fell instantly in love with Gypsy music at that moment and has continued to promote the music ever since, appearing in several documentaries such as 2006's When the Road Bends.
