MULTI-PLATINUM RECORDING ARTISTS
feat NICOLAS REYES + TONINO BALIARDO
LIVE AT THE PABST THEATER
SATURDAY JUNE 20
Over the years, the Grammy award winning Gipsy Kings have included singers and guitarists from the Reyes and Baliardo families. The band's vigorous guitar work and passionate vocals are the trademarks of an indigenous musical tradition known as "rumba flamenco."
Since the 1987 release of the international hit single "Bamboleo," from their platinum-selling debut album, the Gipsy Kings have dominated the World Music charts and sold more than fourteen million albums worldwide--more than
Four million in the United States alone. Their platinum compilation, The Best of the Gipsy Kings, was on the charts for more than a year. There are no other examples of a non-English speaking band (the group's language is the Gypsy dialect of gitane) with such a consistent winning streak in the U.S., where the group is the biggest-selling French act ever.
Albums such as the gold-certified Mosaique, Allegria, Este Mundo, Gipsy Kings Live, Love & Liberté, Tierra Gitana, Cantos de Amor, and Volare! The Very Best of the Gipsy Kings have provided a steady stream of hits to Billboard's world music, Latin, and pop charts. The ensemble's music has been used in numerous motion pictures, including Peter Weir's "Fearless" and Joel and Ethan Coen's "The Big Lebowski."
For the group's Grammy-nominated acoustic release, Roots, in 2004, 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, where they collaborated with producer Craig Street.
The Gipsy King's newest release in 2014, Savor Flamenco won a Grammy for Best World Music Album and continue to bring their sound and passion of performance to the US 2015 summer tour, celebrating 26 years of their music.
