The Gipsy Kings founder and a self-taught guitarist, Jahloul "Chico" Bouchikhi, formed Chico and the Gypsies (made up of musicians from Arles and Montpelier) in the early 90’s, and quickly gained widespread recognition, selling more than two hundred thousand copies of their debut album, Vagabundo. Chico also serves as a special envoy for peace for UNESCO.


Through their fusion of Flamenco and Rumba Catalan, this band’s addictive brand of Spanish Gypsy swing music has been able to sometimes put audiences into a euphoric or almost trancelike state while gyrating to their very danceable beat.


Besides having performed to a full house in Hong Kong  in the 90’s, the band has also played in France, India, China and South Korea, all the way entrancing audiences with their mesmerising vocals and moving guitars.
