You may think "Bamboleo" and "Djobi, Djoba" are all the Gipsy Kings have to
offer, but these consummate musicians are more than two-trick ponies. With
members born to two prominent (and related) Gypsy families in southern
France, the band struggled for years as a wedding ensemble before hitting
the big time in 1988 with their eponymous release. Though justly
characterized as softening the flamenco tradition for world audiences, the
Kings are perennial favorites and destined to remain such.
