In association with John Scher/Metropolitan Entertainment
Flamenco, Latin rhythms and Western pop come together in the irresistible music of Gipsy Kings, the GRAMMY-winning, chart-topping world music superstars.
For more than 30 years now, the Gipsy Kings have captured the world’s imagination, ever since the release of their platinum-selling debut album in 1983. Since then, this party-starting ensemble has toured around the globe and sold 20 million albums worldwide. Their 2013 LP, Savor Flamenco, won that year’s GRAMMY Award for Best World Music Album, and their smash hit single, “Bamboleo,” just reached a new generation when it was featured in last year’s big-screen hit, Sing!
Led by songwriters Nicolas Reyes (lead vocals) and Tonnino Baliardo (lead guitar), Gipsy Kings is comprised of electrifying flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier (in the south of France), most descended from gitanos, Berber-Moroccan and Spanish gypsies who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War. Performing in Spanish (with a decidedly Andalusian accent), the Gipsy Kings are credited with bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music derived from traditional flamenco, to new audiences around the world.
