The Domba or Dom (Sanskrit ḍoma, dialectally also Dombo, Domra, Domaka, Dombari and variants) are an ethnic group, or groups, scattered across India. Many are nomadic and peripatetic groups in Uttar Pradesh are said to be of Dom origin such as the Bangali, Bhantu, Bazigar, Habura, Kanjar, and Sansi.

  • The Domba or Dom (Sanskrit ḍoma, dialectally also Dombo, Domra, Domaka, Dombari and variants) are an ethnic group, or groups, scattered across India. Many are nomadic and peripatetic groups in Uttar Pradesh are said to be of Dom origin such as the Bangali, Bhantu, Bazigar, Habura, Kanjar, and Sansi. It could also be that term Dom is generically used to describe any peripatetic nomad, as all these groups mentioned are distinct and strictly endogamous. Some speak a dialect or argot of their own, while others speak the prevailing dialect or language. The 2011 Census of India for Uttar Pradesh showed the Dom as a Scheduled Caste with a population of 110,353. It is also believed that the Dom or Domi people of the Middle East, in addition to the Roma of Europe, are descendants of Domba. Its presumed root, ḍom, which is connected with drumming, is linked to damara and damaru, Sanskrit terms for "drum" and the Sanskrit verbal root डम् ḍam- 'to sound (as a drum)', perhaps a loan from Dravidian, e.g. Kannada ḍamāra 'a pair of kettle-drums', and Telugu ṭamaṭama 'a drum, tomtom'. The people are called Bericho, Dom, or Doma. The Dom identity developed out of their work as musicians. They are a heterogeneous group, descended from a number of families that took up service with the various local rulers. The Dom belong to the Nizari Ismaili sect in Hunza. There are around 706,000 Doms in Odisha. In Varanasi, the Hindu holy city in Uttar Pradesh, the Dom perform the most important task of cremation of dead bodies. (en)
