Get your tickets now at NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722)Taking audiences back to the south of France with flamenco guitars and booming Spanish vocals, the hit-makers behind 'Bamboléo' celebrate in their very own, blistering tradition. 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, which received a Grammy for Best World Music Album in 2014. 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. Breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to climb the US and World music charts and 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.
