The original line up of The Gipsy Kings will be at Cambridge Corn Exchange on Monday, July 9.

The Americans The Americans

Since bursting onto the music scene 25 years ago, they have sold 20 million albums. They will be supported by Los Angeles quartet The Americans, playing rock and Americana.

The Gipsy Kings are a group of flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier in the south of France, who perform in Andalusian Spanish. Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish gypsies who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War.

They are known for bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. The group originally called itself Los Reyes, many of the being part of the Reyes family.

Los Reyes started out as a Gypsy band. They traveled around France, playing at weddings, festivals, and in the streets. Because they lived so much like Gypsies, the band adopted the name Gipsy Kings. Tickets are almost sold out. £58 and £49 from 01223 357851 or www.cornex.co.uk or tickets@cambridgelivetrust.co.uk.
