Gipsy KingsThe Grammy nominated Gipsy Kings recently brought their joyful sounds of progressive pop-oriented flamenco to Austin’s newest music venue, Austin City Limits – Live. The Gipsy Kings, who hail from the south of France, are two bands of brothers: the Reyes (Nicolas, Canut, Paul, Patchai, and Andre) and the Baliardos (Tonino, Paco and Diego). The Reyes brothers are the sons of renowned flamenco artist Jose Reyes, while their cousins, the Baliardos, are offspring of world-famous flamenco guitarist, Manitas de Plata.
