LOS REYES: 40 years in The Gipsy Kings are still seated on the throne.

An acoustic guitar-wielding troupe of Andalusian descent, the Gipsy Kings came up in the south of France and play a Roma-influenced flamenco style known as Catalan rumba. But don’t let that intimidate you. Even if you’ve never owned any recordings by Gipsy Kings, you’re likely guilty of crooning uber-ballad “Volare” in the shower and you may be surprised that you know at least some of the words to “Bamboleo.” The Kings’ genius is in making a physically and technically demanding style go down like a glass of cool sangria, like on the reggae-flavored “Escucha Me” or the salsa-funk of “Vamos A Bailar.”
