Shooting to fame in the late 80s with their hit singles “Bamboleo” and Djobi Djobi” The Gipsy Kings have maneuvered themselves into being a staple ingredient for fiestas worldwide. After selling millions of albums and almost as many concert tickets, The Gipsy Kings have come a long way from their beginning days of busking on café terraces on the Côte d'Azur. Also rare for a French group the Reyes and Baliardi brothers have become stars in the United States. This group has been the inspiration of many gipsy bands to pop up since their phenomenal success. Their story begins with Jose Reyes the talented singer and guitarist who was already becoming a legend in the Gipsy community. He raised his sons – Nicolas, André, Patchaï, François (aka "Canut") and Paul (aka "Pablo") – to become musicians like himself, and as soon as the boys were old enough to play guitar Jose put the actions into play to make his dream a reality of forming a family group. Encouraged by their busking success they added their cousins to their line-up. Their debut album, “Allergria” did not have the commercial success they were hoping it would have. The group was becoming a big hit in local nightclubs with their infectious dance sound and their fan base was growing by word of mouth alone. By the end of the 80’s The Gipsy King’s popularity in North America was quickly reaching superstar status while their albums sold like hotcakes earning them a stack of gold discs. The group is currently touring and enjoying the continued success their self-produced album “Savor Flamenco” has had it was a return to their hybrid flamenco roots. Their sound is high energy, fun, and influential to many of the bands that formed in honor of them and their continued success.
