Track Listing

News & Reviews

  • The Best of the Gipsy Kings is now available on vinyl for the first time, from Nonesuch Records. The vinyl edition features this popular collection from 1995 on two 140-gram LPs. The initial success of this 18-track compilation, chronicling the first seven years of the group's Nonesuch career, illustrated just how popular the Gipsy Kings had become: It held the top spot on the World Music charts for a full year.

  • About This Album

    Gipsy Kings enthralled world music audiences with their fourth, all-new studio set. They create, says the New York Times, “passionate folk-pop music that takes the flamenco tradition as its stylistic base and stirs in contemporary instrumentation and international flavors.”
