The Music of THE GIPSY KINGS Performed By LOS CINTRON - Cinco de Mayo Weekend Celebration - 7PM Show
Friday, May 2, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Just as good as importing the Gipsy Kings themselves, Los Cintron is the real deal. Popular around the world, the Cintron brothers play a mix of world, Latin, and flamenco music. They have performed with a host of notable artists, including Gazpacho Andalu, Duende Camaron, and Barbara Martinez. They've also played in front of just about every type of audience imaginable, including the Metroplitan Opera in Carmen at Lincoln Center. The guitars, vocals, and melodies of Los Cintron will transport you directly to Spain.
Both Christobal and Rafael Cintron showed musical promise at an early age and were encouraged to sing by their mother Maria Teresa Lugana Santos. Natives of Spain, they arrived in the U.S. at an early age and have been living both here and abroad for the last 30 years. Their music is expansive, they sing with the souls of gypsies, and they will enchant you with their rhythms. Whatever the occasion, these brothers will enchant, charm, and seduce their audiences to no end.
