The Gipsy Kings are a group of flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier in the south of France, who perform in Andalusian Spanish. Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish gypsies who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War.
Flamenco Duo Gypsy King Tribute
They are known for bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences.
The group originally called itself Los Reyes. Their music has a particular rumba flamenca style, with pop influences; many songs of the Gipsy Kings fit social dances, such as salsa and rumba. Their music has been described as a place where “Spanish flamenco and gypsy rhapsody meet salsa funk”.
The Gipsy Kings, born in France but brought up with Spanish culture, are largely responsible for bringing the sounds of progressive pop-oriented flamenco to a worldwide audience.
The band started out in Arles, a town in southern France, during the 1970s, when brothers Nicolas and Andre Reyes, the sons of flamenco artist Jose Reyes, teamed up with their cousins Jacques, Maurice, and Tonino Baliardo. Manitas de Plata and Jose Reyes were a duo who triggered the wider popularity of rumba flamenca (also known as Spanish or gypsy rumba).
Gipsy Kings have collaborated with many renowned artists. These include “Speaking of Dreams” with Joan Baez in 1990, a duet of “My Way” with Francis Cabrel in 1993, a version of Bob Marley’s “One Love” sung with his son Ziggy Marley and Georges Reyes’ song “Donde esta el amor” with Nicolas Reyes in 2006.
They also performed “Get Up!” with Captain Jack, and covered a version of the Doobie Brothers’ “Long Train Running” with Bananarama on their Pop Life album, under the pseudonym Alma de Noche. (Wikipedia).
