Gipsy Kings

September 23 @ 7:00 pm

Flamenco, Latin rhythms and Western pop come together in the irresistible music of Gipsy Kings, the GRAMMY-winning, chart-topping world music superstars. 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 1930’s 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. 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!
