Roma rapper's message of hope

Musician delivers message of inspiration to minority ethnic group in Romania.

    More than 500,000 Romas, an ethnic group with South Asian origins and its own distinct language, have lived in Romania for decades.

    But the majority of them in the eastern European country live in extremely poor and isolated communities.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Romania, where Connect-R, a Roma rap star, is delivering a message of inspiration and hope to his people.
