SYNOPSIS

Dive into the heady, sweeping and wild story of the Gipsy Kings – a ragtag band of family musicians with one mission: to set hearts beating, pulses racing and passions swirling. They would define a movement, touch the souls of a generation, and change music forever.

The Gipsy Kings’ raw combination of folk guitar, strong underpinning rhythms and complex solos, thrown together with the incomparable passion and energy of the gitan culture, was completely at odds with and a break from the power ballads and pop synth of prevailing music.

Driven by Tonino Balliardo’s lightning-fingered precision, Chico Bouchikhi’s vision and Nicolas Reyes’ voice that could reach to the depths of your soul, The Gipsy Kings would take music, and the world by storm – selling 25 million albums worldwide.

Experience Family, Betrayal, Inspiration, Love, Passion…theirs is a story of survival, raw emotion, identity, and the enduring spirit of the human heart, that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.
