Overview: The Domari people cluster refers to an ethnic group found across the Middle East, though mainly in Iran and Egypt. While some sources trace their origins to the Indian Subcontinent, the Domari have lived in the Middle East long enough to develop a distinct identity from other "Gypsy" groups like the Romany and Banjara. The Domari and Romany are likely descendants of two different waves of migration out of India hundreds of years ago.
