Gipsy Kings,

Thursday, May 18

The multi-Grammy award winning group Gipsy Kings really has nothing left to prove. Since its debut album, 1978’s raw and unplugged-feeling Allegria, the band has consistently produced stellar (and quite unique) music that fuses Catalonian musical traditions with salsa, rumba, pop, and flamenco. While the group’s music can sometimes sound too pleasant and too easy-listening on record (especially in some of the more recent output), the live experience of Gipsy Kings is anything but staid. Liberated from the trappings of overbearing production, the band is nigh explosive in the live setting, operating in the great tradition of its forbears, capable of moving showgoers, body and soul. While Gipsy Kings hasn’t released an album since 2013’s Sabor Flamenco, the group’s thirteen albums of material to date should provide for an unpredictable set list that spans a truly singular musical odyssey. $49.50-$89.50, 8:00pm, The Majestic, 224 E Houston St, (210) 226-3333, — James Courtney
