Artist Spotlight: Gipsy Kings

They've been strumming your heartstrings with their passionate guitars, fervent clapping and husky, seductive vocals for decades. Now, 30 years after their debut and 25 after their self-titled breakout album gave us ardent jams like "Bamboleo," the Gipsy Kings are back with a brand-new collection of flamenco-kissed, jazz-hued tunes. Get to know the French band's sound -- based on rumba catalana, a cousin of flamenco that's peppered with salsa, rumba, jazz and more -- from start to finish.
