one of the pioneers of the world music genre

The Gipsy Kings are hugely influential figures in the world of flamenco and, more widely, world music as a whole. They blend flamenco with a sprinkling of Latin rhythms, western pop and jazz. Comprised of two sets of brothers, the Reyes' and the Baliardos, who banded together in 1979 under the original moniker Los Reyes, the group have sold over 25 million records worldwide.
If you're unfamiliar with their name, you will undoubtedly have heard their music in film or television. It's their version of The Eagles' Hotel California that soundtracks Jesus' dance in The Big Lebowski, and their cover of You've Got a Friend in Me in Toy Story 3 which gets Buzz's hips a-shaking.
Despite their dalliances with every type of music under the sun, it's flamenco which still which has the group's heart. They celebrated this love affair with Savor Flamenco in 2013, their thirteenth studio record, and one which won them a Grammy Award for Best World Music Album. Its was yet another electrifying collection of lightening fast guitars and handclaps which paid tribute to the rich history of Andalucian music, whilst also bring that sound right up to date.
They continue to tour Savor Flamenco across the States in 2015. Catch them when they play Beacon Theater in New York, NY, showing for one date only on 12 Sep 2015!
