The Gipsy Kings featuring

Nicolas Reyes & Tonino Baliardo

Melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa and pop to the tune of 20 million albums sold, the Grammy Award-winning hit-makers behind “Bamboléo” continue to celebrate in their very own, blistering tradition. Uniting the family Reyes and the family Baliardo, The Gipsy Kings continue a tradition that has drawn famous fans such as Picasso, Cocteau, Dali and Chaplin. From playing on the streets of Cannes and the hedonistic heights of St. Tropez, breaking world music barriers as one of the rare groups to climb the US and World music charts. Now bringing the party back to the United States, The Gipsy Kings will raise the roof with dance-ready furor, returning to their groundbreaking eponymous album and the nomadic spirit that has led them to their latest, Savor Flamenco – giving audiences the “deep shout at the heart of our community.”

She then went on to achieve six #1 singles as a solo artist.  In the U.S. alone, Diana has tallied 31 Top Ten singles and 14 Top Ten Albums, selling over 100 million units around the globe, to date. When Endless Love hit #1 in 1981, Diana became the first female artist in music history to place six singles at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Other chart-topping hits include Stop!
