The Gipsy Kings feat. Nicolas Reyes and Tonnino Baliardo – Wed 11 July
THE GIPSY KINGS 20.45
THE AMERICANS 19.30
The legendary Gipsy Kings featuring Nicolas Reyes and Tonnino Baliardo achieved world-wide recognition in 1988 with the release of their eponymous album which featured the global smash hits Bamboleo, Un Amor and Djoba Djoba. They won a Grammy in 2014 for their album Savor Flamenco.
The band are all members of two related families from France and are credited for pioneering the sound of progressive flamenco worldwide.
The Americans summon the spirit of old blues and country, creating something brand new, leaving behind nostalgia. Their debut album in 2017 caused a stir with Greg Vandy (American Standard Time) calling it “distinctly American rock ‘n’ roll. Throaty, firin’ on all cylinders, road-trip rock”. The Americans songs are miniature biographies, magical stories, intimate portraits that leave much unsaid. Musically, they trail-blaze along a road less travelled.
