Hi Massimo,

:evil: , Indeed! I have never heard of this guy before; however, there have been many bands over the years who have pretended to be the Gipsy Kings. Years ago on this Forum, a fan from Kazakhstan said he heard that the GK were going to play in their national stadium. That was another case of a phony GK group. There are good Gipsy Kings tribute bands, but they never call themselves the Gipsy Kings, and their musical arrangements are their own interpretations of GK songs, not direct imitations.

The Gipsy Kings are aware of these impostors. On their official website, gipsykings.com, before they completely changed the site last year for the launch of SAVOR FLAMENCO, there was a "beware of imitators" page.

I think the reason why these phony groups keep popping up is that although the Gipsy Kings are so well known for their music, many people don't know what they look like.
