The Reyes brothers; Patchai, Paul, Canut and brother-in-law Chico all agree this is a wonderful time in our history for us. We are all back together after twenty years playing concerts together, with our amazing band (fifteen on stage) we have also just finished our new album which we recorded in Miami due for release this summer on Universal Records.
Our music is a fusion of Flamenco/Rumba/Pop for all to enjoy. We don’t really rehearse formally as most groups do. We always have our guitars with us and for us music is our life as it was for our Great Grandfathers, Grandfathers and Fathers. Even as a very young gypsy child once you can hold a guitar you are taught to play. It is just part of our culture which we all embrace as previous gypsy generations have done in the past.
Through the centuries gypsy life has been very hard-originally gypsies came from India and travelled across the globe with very little money and no education. We are very proud of our culture and it gives us much pleasure to play concerts so all our fans can enjoy the fun and experiences of the songs we perform.
Arles in the South of France is where we all live with many other gypsy families. It was the home of Vincent Van Gough and many of his finest works were painted in and around the village.
Maybe that is why Canute is always drawing and has a great passion for his second love, sketching landscapes. Patchai always with a smile is happy to be with his family when not on the road touring, Brother-in-law Chico is a U.N.E.S.CO. Peace Ambassador and was recently awarded Legion d’Honneur for his work helping the understanding of Gypsy Culture. Paul enjoys cooking and his speciality is Paella especially when all the families get together and of course their guitars come out and the Fiesta begins.
We all look forward to once again meeting our friends for our GIPSY FIESTA CONCERTS and performing all our hits BAMBOLEO, VOLARE, DJOBI DJOBA, A MI MENERA and new songs from our latest album.
