Description

Legendary band Gipsy Kings, returns after 10 years to Belgrade where he will perform on May 11 in the Sports Hall.

The Gipsy Kings are a group of flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier (in the south of France), who perform in the Spanish language with an Andalusian accent.

Although group members were born in France, their parents were gitanos who fled Catalonia during the Spanish Civil War. They are known for bringing Rumba Catalana, a pop-oriented version of traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. 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 Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk".
They became popular with their self-titled first album, Gipsy Kings, which included the songs "Djobi Djoba", "Bamboleo" and the romantic ballad "Un Amor". The song "Volare" on their second album Mosaique is a rumba version of Domenico Modugno’s Italian hit "Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu". The Gipsy Kings were enormously popular in France and throughout Europe along with the Middle East.

After six Grammy nomination in the category "World music", they finally won the 2014 award for the album "Savor Flamenco".

They are cousins of the flamenco great Manitas de Plata, lead guitarist Tonino Baliardo married his granddaughter.
