A gitano is a member of Spain's gypsy community. Gypsies often live in camps and retain their nomadic habits. They have preserved many of their customs and do not usually integrate into the mainstream of Spanish society. Their language is caló. Gypsies have been a great influence on flamenco, and many of the best performers are gypsies.
