  • about this album

    The Gipsy Kings’s self-titled debut was both a cultural phenomenon and a pop sensation. The Washington Post found it “bursting with passion and spirit, thanks largely to Nicholas Reyes's compelling vocals, layer upon layer of rhythm guitars, and more than a few sparkling Gypsy melodies.”
