Sunday Morning Music

I was playing songs from my music collection during a writing session last week when the software selected, at random, a couple of songs from a Gypsy Kings album I have.  It was great to hear them again;  it added a little Latin verve to my listening.

The Gypsy Kings are an interesting group.  They’re from France, but mostly descendants of Spanish gitanos (Romani, or gypsies) who sought refuge in France after the Spanish Civil War.  Their Spanish music is therefore fully authentic – they were born and raised in that tradition.  They’ve been successful all over the world.

I thought you might enjoy a full Gypsy Kings concert, so here’s one recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2004.

Verve indeed!
