Flamenco and Rumba on the loose in Lisbon

Coliseu dos Recreios

The Gipsy Kings, already 25 years old, formed in France, are a band (re)known worldwide and keep intact their characteristics, their roots, which filled the Coliseu dos Recreios, with a public eager to dance, sing and have fun. Sound of yours, Flamencos and Rumbas.

André Reyes and his Gipsy Kings, Kakou Reyes, Mario Reyes, Thomas Reyes, Patchai Reyes, Tambo Reyes, Danny Marta, Joseph Cortes, Guilherme Alves and François Santiago, performed for the first time at the Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon, on their return to Portugal.

Originally scheduled for April 2021, they had their concert postponed to October 24, due to Covid pandemic rules in place in Portugal.

The Gipsy Kings are a mixture of Flamenco and Rumba, hot musical styles conducive to dancing, and keep all the nostalgia and rhythm that we are used to. The hoarse voices of its artists, so particular to flamenco, brought back memories for many who filled the Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon, with the ever-increasing rhythm of the guitars.

All of them are excellent guitarists, with particular emphasis on Mário Reyes, who starred in some of the evening’s solos, bringing a completely full room to the boil.

On a night full of rhythm, there was no lack of the oldest themes that we all danced to in our youth, such as “Djobi, Djoba” or “Baila Me” with drum and percussion solo, in which Coliseu couldn’t resist and stood up, in what was an irresistible call to dance.

The voices of André Reyes and Thomaz Reyes invite you to dream, hoarse, melodious, they left no one indifferent, in a calmer, more romantic tone, in “Un Amor” or “Sin Ella”.

And the whole night was a musical crescendo, “Bem, Bem Maria”, “A Mi Manera”, “Una Rumba Por Aqui”.

Some themes, totally instrumental, showed the exuberance of the music, the mastery of who played it, here a reference to Danny Marta with his bass, which brought us “A Minha Casinha” by Xutos e Pontapés and with “Bamboleo” each one can show the magic he takes from his musical instrument, from the percussion to the keys, the audience was exuberant.

Supposedly they were supposed to end with “Volare”, but almost tearing the house down the audience demanded one more and so André Reyes and his Gipsy Kings sang and enchanted with a new theme dedicated to the memory of their father, closing with a flourish a magnificent night.
