Gypsy Kings

The Gipsy Kings are a music band from Arles, Nîmes and Montpellier. Some of the group’s members were born in France, but their parents were “gitanos” – Spanish Romani people who fled Catalonia during the 1930’s Spanish Civil War.

The gitano musical tradition is also a feature also of Uzès’ long and warm evenings. We can also vouch for their great talent, as you can see in this little video, taken only a few steps away from Rue Saint Roman.
