Flamenco, Latin rhythms and Western pop come together in the irresistible music of The Gipsy Kings, the Grammy-winning, chart-topping world music superstars.
For more than 30 years, the Gipsy Kings have captured the world’s imagination, ever since the release of their platinum-selling album in 1987, which included hits like “Djobi Djoba,” “Bamboléo,” and the romantic ballad, “Un Amor.” 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.
Led by songwriters Nicolas Reyes (lead vocals) and Tonino Baliardo (lead guitar), The Gipsy Kings is comprised of electrifying flamenco, salsa, and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier (in the south of France). Performing in their native language, Gitane (a mixture of Spanish, French, and Catalan), the Gipsy Kings are credited with bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music derived from traditional flamenco, to new audiences around the world.
From the beginning, their sound has reflected the constant travel and diverse influences of the gypsy heritage, yet they have never lost their intense connection to the traditional flamenco of their heritage, keeping a spotlight on Tonino Baliardo’s fluid guitar work and Nicolas Reyes’s powerful vocals.
