Gipsy Kings consist of two bands of brothers – The Reyes and The Baliardos –
both the offspring of Spanish gypsies that fled to France to escape Spain’s
civil war. Their music pays homage to their Gitano heritage, blending Romani
rhapsody with Spanish flamenco and salsa funk. The Gipsy Kings have made
progressive flamenco popular across the world, and on Sunday, August 19, they’ll
bring their signature sound to Talking Stick Resort.
1989, Gipsy Kings released their self-titled album in the United States,
and it spent 40 weeks on the charts. Fan favorite songs include “Bamboleo,”
“Djobi Djoba” and “Volare” as well as the band’s more recent remake of “Hotel
California.” The Gipsy Kings will play those and more in a special appearance
showcasing the emotional vocals, fast flamenco guitar leads and rhythmic
strumming that has made them a worldwide sensation.
