THE GYPSY ALLSTARS feat. The Gipsy Kings Family Yoshi’s is excited to welcome Cedric Leonardi and Mario Reyes and the Gypsy Allstars for a vibrant and passionate evening of Indo–Gypsy fusion as Gipsy Kings rumba meets Indian Alap. The South France gypsies meet San Francisco‘s premier jazz venue and neither will be the same again! The evening will also include some of the finest LA based musicians from Cuba, Spain and India and will see Flamenco’s foremost modern stars -- Manuel Gutierrez and Arelen Hurtado -- weave their flamenco magic into the music. THE GIPSY KINGS JOIN ALL-STARS PROJECT TO RETURN TO INDIA The Gipsy Kings emerged out of the South of France in the early '80s when the Reyes and Baliardos families set the world on fire with their infectious and sensual rhythms: sounds that were original and breathtaking. We have been dancing to their Gypsy beats ever since. Songs like Djobi Djoba and Bamboleo are forever etched into our minds as quintessential feel good music. A recent all-star collaboration in the India sub-continent featuring Gipsy Kings’ Mario Reyes and Georges Reyes, has spawned a new project called the Gypsy Allstars which will explore the origins of gypsy culture in Rajasthan, India and see the gypsies return to India for a Discovery Channel special, merging Indian and Gypsy rhythms. The Gypsy Allstars, have been hand picked by Cedric Leonardi, who grew up with the Gipsy Kings and their families in Montpellier’s ‘la cite gely’ and as their drummer, had the privilege of performing with them. The Gypsy AllStar lineup will see the gypsies joining forces with local Indian musicians to add an exciting fusion sound of Gipsy King’s favorites and exotic-blended indo-gypsy music. In preparation for the return to India in 2013, Ced Leonardi and Mario Reyes are preparing new material and re-imagine the existing music, working with the cream of LA based musicians to bring the new project alive.
