Bamboléo! Gipsy Kings heading to Bristol’s Colston Hall
PUBLISHED: 12:00 14 April 2017
France’s most successful group of all time, the Gipsy Kings, are making a return to Bristol’s Colston Hall, 25 years after their last show there.
The group’s self-titled debut album, released in 1982, introduced millions of listeners to a blend of traditional flamenco with Western pop and Latin rhythms.
Since then, they have toured virtually non-stop, and sold more than 20 million albums.
They are back with a ninth studio album, called Savor Flamenco, their first release in six years.
This is the first time they have produced and written all the material on their album.
The history of the group goes back to when Nicholas Reyes and Tonnino Baliardo performed with Nicholas’ father Jose Reyes.
When Jose died in 1979, Nicolas and Tonnino continued performing together and travelling the country.
Gipsy Kings will be at the Colston Hall at 7pm on Sunday.
Tickets, priced £24.99-45, are available from 01172 034040 or www.colstonhall.org
