About the project

In Tiki, Tiki, Tai, Colombian gypsies share the lullabies, tales, and secrets they use to tuck their kids in bed so they grow up happy and confident. With fun games, interactions, and animations, this appbook narrates these wonderful traditions in Spanish and in Rromani, also called shib Rromaní, a language that embodies the roads gypsies have taken in their coming and going around the world with solidarity, freedom, and love for life.

This appbook is part of the series With Differential Approach launched in 2014 by Fundalectura and the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare (ICBF) ⎯ whose goal is to celebrate Colombia’s cultural diversity by bringing us closer to the melodies, songs, stories, and games that kids in rural, indigenous, Afro-descendant, and gypsy homes grow up with, featured in their native languages and in Spanish, and with beautiful illustrations by prominent Colombian artists.
