Watch & Listen
Melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop to the tune of 20 million albums sold, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers behind 'Bamboléo' celebrate in their very own, blistering tradition – taking audiences back to the south of France with flamenco guitars and booming Spanish vocals.
Uniting the family Reyes and the family Baliardo, the band continues a tradition that has drawn famous fans such as Picasso, Cocteau, Dali and Chaplin. From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to climb the US and World music charts. Featured in the likes of The Big Lebowski, Toy Story 3 and Glee, the band has embraced western classics by Bob Marley, the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, whilst also incorporating dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.
Now bringing the party back to the United States this summer, The Gipsy Kings will raise the roof with dance-ready furore, returning to their groundbreaking eponymous album and the nomadic spirit that has led them to their latest, Savor Flamenco – giving audiences the 'deep shout at the heart of our community'.
Vilray (vill-ree) is a composer and performer raised in Brooklyn. He sings, whistles, and plays guitar in NYC and around the world.
His recent work explores the depths of humor, heartache and romance captured in the varieties of Jazz and Country swing music played in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
With the 2017 release of three singles of original music, Vilray's unique take on the Tin Pan Alley style is gaining wider acclaim. These songs were entirely recorded live and lathe-cut to vinyl in real time--lending them a haunting warmth and authentic crackle.
