Following the unanimous acclaim for their Dubai Opera performance earlier this year, Gipsy Kings by André Reyes will return in 2020 for one night only on 12 March.
The gypsy-french musical outfit was founded by the Reyes family, and the Gipsy Kings trace their lineage to Gitanos - Spanish Romani people from the Catalonia region of Spain. Their infectious Latin rhythms are a heady concoction of rumba, flamenco and salsa.
They first captured the world’s imagination in 1987 with their album "Gipsy Kings" that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe, introducing the world to “Rumba Gitano”—South America’s rumba rhythm married to the fleet attack of flamenco guitars with hits such as "Djobi Djoba", and "Baila Baila". They achieved great success in different countries of Europe, especially in France, Italy, England, Spain and the US where their debut album spent forty weeks on the US album charts, something that very few albums in Spanish had achieved.
Led by Andre Reyes, the Gipsy Kings will perform iconic anthems including 'Bamboleo', 'Volare' and 'Djobi, Djoba', for an evening of vibrant Latin sounds set to create the ultimate party vibe.
Tickets are available from AED 195 at www.dubaiopera.com. 20% off on Gold and Silver tickets until 14 August.
