Gipsy Kings – 14th June
For just over 40 years, the Gipsy Kings have entertained audiences worldwide with their energetic brand of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Fronted for over 30 years by songwriters and producers Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, the group’s self-titled debut album became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing millions of listeners to The Gipsy King’s unique sound.
Having been nominated for several GRAMMY Awards previously, The Gipsy King’s won Best Album for their most recent record ‘Savor Flamenco’ in 2014. Their music also has its fingerprints all over popular culture, including a cover of The Eagles’ ‘Hotel California’ featuring prominently in the seminal movie The Big Lebowski, and their version of Randy Newman’s ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ in Toy Story 3.
