Gipsy Kings Featuring Nicolas Reyes & Tonnino Baliardo

The Gipsy Kings are that rare thing - a household name famous solely for their music; consisting of two bands of brothers: the Reyes (Nicolas, Canut, Paul, Patchai, Andre) and the Baliardos (Tonino, Paco, Diego); the most successful French musical outfit ever are big in Brazil and popular (extremely so) in Persia, honored at The Alamo in Texas and celebrated in China. All this achieved without MTV videos, hype, reality TV appearances, famous girlfriends, bad behavior... an international audience won over purely by the music and the big, welcoming soulfulness of its creators. That's no ordinary achievement. Understandably, the Gipsy Kings are extraordinary characters: to play guitar and sing is something their fathers, grandfathers and ancestors did. The Gipsy Kings make music as communion, artistry rooted in the past yet focused on the future. Their Rhomba Flamenca style, with pop influences and has been described as a place where "Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk."
