HI Meli,

Thank you so much for this link! Nicolas' performance brought tears to my eyes and sent chills up my spine. Looking at the tour schedule, I realize that this concert was just two days ago. "Habla me" is one of my favorite songs. I have only been going to Gipsy Kings concerts since 2005; I don't remember him singing it in any of the seven concerts I've been to. I hope he sings it at the upcoming Los Angeles concert. I think he will, because it looks like they've brought back an old favorite.

It is interesting to compare this performance to the version on Este Mundo, one of their earlier albums. It's like the difference between someone who has just fallen in love, and someone who has been with someone they love for many years. (Like the difference between the way he sang "Un Amor" back then, and the way he sings it now.) Sometimes you hear people (not true GK fans) say that the Gipsy Kings are "getting old," or are "past their prime," things like that, which makes me mad. This performance of Nicolas' totally disproves that point of view.

You're welcome Amanda! I'm totally agree with you. I have that CD, but I always think that the GK are incredible when they are singing in front of people, Live performance (that's what I meant :oops: , sorry It's a little bit dificult to express the idea I have in my mind in other language).

Take care!

Thank you Meli for posting this! So nice to hear Nicolas singing an "old one", and Habla Me, is for me one of their best songs!
