The legendary French group, the Gipsy Kings, whose infectious Latin rhythms marked the end of the 1990s and early 2000s, will be giving a concert in Sarajevo.

Songs like “Baila Me,” Trista Pena,” “Volare” and “Bamboleo” are just a few of the hits that will be enjoyed by those who attend this Sarajevo concert, and tickets for this spectacle can be purchased here.

Nicolas Reyes and Tonino Baliardo are still the main players in the band, which has sold more than 25 million albums and won Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards, and the Gipsy Kings continue to play as wonderfully as ever.

They are a group of flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier in the south of France who perform in Andalusian Spanish.

Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish gypsies who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War.

They are known for bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. The group originally called itself Los Reyes.

Their music has a particular rumba flamenca style, with pop influences; many songs of the Gipsy Kings fit social dances, such as salsa and rumba. Their music has been described as a place where "Spanish flamenco and gypsy rhapsody meet salsa funk".
