Well, Nicolas said in one interview that he learned to sing from his dad and his older brothers, and he named Paul and Canut. All those great singers and musicians in one family -- awesome!

I would love to have a DVD of this entire Arles concert. I don't know how long it has been since all eight of the Gipsy Kings have been onstage together at the same time, so this concert is a real event.

(I'd love to think they'll all be onstage in the US this time around ... .)

Thanks, that's a great video! I've heard Paul sing "A Tu Vera" in concert, and he's gotten even better! There is a whole series of YouTube videos from this concert, at least 10 of them. I'm going to check them all out.

Hi, Amanda!

Do check them out; you won't be disappointed! Patchaï does a pretty wicked version of "Pena Penita," and I was very moved by all of Canut's numbers. He seemed to be pretty emotional. I think he was happy to be back onstage, especially on home turf with the entire complement of brothers and cousins.

Oh, how I hope they are all coming to the US this time around! Can't wait for next weekend!

Hi Jusquin!

Yes, I did look at them all, and you're right that Canut seemed very emotional. I'm sure he was happy to be back on stage, especially in his home town with all his brothers and cousins. It's wonderful to see Diego again; he looks great, but I read that he has a bad back, which is why he doesn't do the tours anymore. I look forward to hearing about the concert you're going to attend.
