Here are some street scenes from todays very rainy Hidirellez Festival - an annual celebration for Romany people - in Sulukule, Istanbul.

First Selim Sesler plays to some photos, then dance through the streets with dancers and davul players.

The Sulukule neighborhood - a neighborhood that is hundreds of years old - is one of several areas of the city currently being completely demolished for urban renewal. When they leave, the families who live here will be separated from generations of history and culture.
