Andre Reyes formally of Gipsy Kings

Big Deal Touring present salsa-pop-flamenco superstar Andre Reyes.
 
One of the original members of the superstar group GIPSY KINGS Andre first captured the world’s imagination in 1987 with the release of their self-titled album ‘Gipsy Kings’. With songs ‘Bamboleo’ and ‘Djobi Djoba’ he has sold close to 20 million albums and toured extensively worldwide. Playing at festivals, events and venues in all corners of the globe, Andre and his music is a live phenomenon, known for their energetic sets featuring infectious Latin rhythms and virtuoso guitar playing.
 
André Reyes is son of celebrated flamenco artist Jose Reyes, and delights audiences with his impressive guitar playing and stunning vocals.
 
Andre is performing in an exclusive national tour with members of the famous Reyes family that is sure to get audiences up and salsa dancing.
 
Despite being born and raised in France, the original Gipsy Kings lineage can be traced back to gitanos, Spanish Romani people who fled the Catalonia region during the Spanish Civil War. This depth of heritage can be heard in the band’s eclectic sound, which draws from a variety of sounds and traditions to reflect their ancestry.
 
Their music is a heady concoction of rumba, flamenco and salsa, described as ‘a crossroads where gypsy rhapsody and flamenco meets salsa funk’. As a result, their live shows are loved by fans of Latin, world and contemporary pop music – and just about anybody who enjoys dancing.
