Ethnogenesis is something that is rather heavily discussed among scholars, so we can be relatively sure it happened in history.  As for in our modern day, your mileage may vary, but in my personal life I've definitely seen it happen.  Especially in melting pot communities.  And the thing is that we are almost all from melting pot communities at one point or another.  Even if you're from a small community in Europe that's been there since the Fifth Century CE, you're still probably from a melting pot thanks to the Volkerwanderung that took place towards the end of the fall of the Western Roman Empire.  :)
