“The Gypsy Kings” at Fox Tucson Theatre
May 18, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$49 – $112
Gipsy Kings continues melding deep-heated flamenco, rumba, salsa, and pop to the tune of 20 million albums sold. The Grammy Award-winning hit-makers behind ‘Bamboléo‘ celebrate in their very own, blistering tradition –taking audiences back to the south of France with flamenco guitars and booming Spanish vocals.
Uniting the family Reyes and the family Baliardo, the band continues 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. Featured in the likes of The Big Lebowski, Toy Story 3 and Glee, the band has embraced western classics by Bob Marley,the Doobie Brothers and The Eagles with globe-hopping grace, whilst also incorporating dramatic cues from Brazilian and Caribbean culture.Now bringing the party back to the United States this summer, The Gipsy Kings will raise the roof with dance-ready furore, 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’.
Opening for Gipsy Kings is very special guest, Doe Paoro. Born and raised in New York, LA-based artist and songwriter Sonia Kreitzer, known by the stage name Doe Paoro, describes her aesthetic as an ethereal blend of pop, soul and R&B. Signed to ANTI Records, her new single “Guilty”, produced by Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Sia, Duffy), was released on January 22, 2018. “Guilty” is about the internalized blame, self-hatred, and guilt that victims often must contend with (sometimes for years) following a perplexing, undermining, shameful encounter involving an abuse of power,” Paoro says. “It happens in Hollywood, and it happens in indie music. This song is my story.”
