Nonesuch Records releases Bamboleo Remixes—three remixes and one acoustic reworking of Gipsy Kings' hit song, “Bamboleo”—in the US today, marking the song's 35th anniversary. Originally released as a single in 1987 and included on Gipsy Kings’ 1988 self-titled Nonesuch debut, “Bamboleo” was certified silver in the UK, while the album went gold and platinum in the UK and US, respectively. Bamboleo Remixes includes new mixes of the song by Pumped Up (aka Nick Patrick), THRDL!FE (aka Jake Brian Tench), and Miami (aka Andy Clay), as well as an acoustic version of the song remixed by Gildas Boclé & Jean Baptiste Boclé. They are available to download and stream here.

“[‘Bamboleo’ is] an inescapable dance track," said the Washington Post. "What lends it a universal perspective is the music's hot-blooded dance rhythms, a sort of flamenco salsa that can fill dance floors around the world." The New York Times said: “A relentlessly passionate folk-pop that flavors agitated flamenco guitar and handclaps with synthesizer, percussion and electric bass … transcends language and regional style.”

An almost twenty-year relationship between Gipsy Kings and Nonesuch Records—spanning from 1988 to 2007—saw the US release of eleven full-length albums (Gipsy Kings, 1988; Mosaïque, 1989; Este Mundo, 1991; Love and Liberté, 1993; Tierra Gitana, 1996; Compas, 1997; Cantos de Amor, 1998; Somos Gitanos, 2001; Tonino Baliardo, 2003; Roots, 2004; Pasajero, 2007), one live album (Live, 1992), and two best-of compilations (The Best of the Gipsy Kings, 1995, and Volaré: The Very Best of the Gipsy Kings, 2000).

For more than thirty years, the Gipsy Kings have topped the World Music charts, selling more than fourteen million albums worldwide—more than four million in the United States alone—winning Grammy and Latin Grammy awards along the way. Their platinum-selling compilation, The Best of the Gipsy Kings, was on the charts for more than a year, while albums such as the gold-certified Mosaïque have provided a steady stream of hits to Billboard’s world music, Latin, and pop charts. Their rendition of “Hotel California” was included in the film The Big Lebowski and on the HBO series Entourage. The 2010 film Toy Story 3 featured a Gipsy Kings version of the movie’s popular, Randy Newman-penned theme, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” “Bamboleo” was featured in the 2015 animated film The Peanuts Movie, as well as 2016’s Sing.

    The original cast album of Adam Guettel’s Broadway musical Days of Wine and Roses, with a book by Craig Lucas, starring Kelli O’Hara and Brian d’Arcy James, is now available on CD, following its recent digital release. “Repeated listenings compound the amazement,” the New York Times says of Guettel’s work, which “has always offered that kind of challenge—initially leaving a feeling of: Beautiful, but wait, I need to hear it again—and those up for it have a way of coming away shining like Moses down from the Mount. The new score has the same effect.” Guettel, O'Hara, and d'Arcy James—all of whom have been nominated for Tony Awards for Days of Wine and Roses—will sign copies of the CD at the Drama Book Shop in NYC this Wednesday, May 22.
