All the members of the band hail from two related families from the Catalan region of the south of France. With their roots steeped in the gypsy settlements, the Gipsy Kings are self-taught musicians who play from their hearts. Their distinctive, energetic guitar work and passionate vocals are the trademarks of a home-grown musical tradition.
The band hit the big time in 1988 with their global smash hit song Bamboleo, then followed up with hits Un Amor and Djoba Djoba. Their debut album the Gipsy Kings sold more than fourteen million copies worldwide – and their platinum compilationThe Best of the Gipsy Kings stayed in the charts for more than a year.
For their recent acoustic album Roots the core members of the Gipsy Kings settled into a stone villa in the small town of St-Andre-de-Bueges in the south of France. For the first time in years, the band recorded without a drum kit, synthesizer, or electric bass, bringing the music closer to its Flamenco origins.
Expect to be taken on a magical, musical journey. The Gipsy Kings play from their hearts. Match with a Catalan influenced picnic and a fine bottle of Rioja; this is music to make you dance and enjoy yourself.
