For just over 40 years, the Gipsy Kings have entertained audiences with their energetic brand of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. The group is a genuine phenomenon, with gold and platinum albums around the globe.

Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish Romani people who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War. Chico Bouchikhi is of Moroccan and Algerian descent. They are known for bringing Rumba Catalana, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. The group originally called itself Los Reyes. Their music has a particular Rumba Flamenca style, with pop influences; many songs of the Gipsy Kings fit social dances, such as Salsa and Rumba. Their music has been described as a place where “Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk”
