The Gypsy Moor Dancers were the precursor, if you will, to Hahbi ‘Ru. Created by Mish Mish (the original Bay Area Mish Mish), one of the notable members was future Hahbi’Ru director John Compton. There’s a story there, which I am not the one to tell, but later John left to create his own group, as we well know, and many of the same songs and dances were to be part of their iconic repertoire. Case and point, this video with their traditional procession followed by an old beloved song and dance, Jamilo.
