French-based, Spanish born musical group The Gipsy Kings are responsible for introducing Rumba Catalana - a pop-oriented version of traditional flamenco music - to a worldwide audience. Their music has been described as a place where "Spanish flamenco and Romani rhapsody meet salsa funk." Brothers Nicolas, Canut and Paul Reyes began playing rumba flamenca because "we liked to watch pretty girls dance," said Nicolas. They have enjoyed international success with songs like "Un Amor," "Bombolero" and "Volare" and their 1993 album "Love and Liberte" won the a Latin Grammy Award for "Best Pop Album of the Year." They recently released a collection of greatest hits titled "The Very Best Of."
