Ah, yes...



Nothing to lift the spirits like a dose of the Gypsy Kings. I remember when they first visited the States, they kept hitting all the French cultural centers here. Why? Because they're not from Spain. They're French, from the petite ville of Arles. But that's okay. I consider myself a Cuban Viking and I'm American. Go figure.

AND: We got caught up with Math. Baila Baila Baila Baila Baila Baila Baila Me!!!!!!

Oooh, I love "Bambaleo" when they play it on XM's world music channel. I also like their version of "Volare."

My dad--being of French decent himself--loves the Gypsy Kings. I know I've heard them, but I can't pick them from a crowd of music. . . I'm a Zydeco girl, myself.

My (now nine year old) daughter's first word was 'Bailabailabaila'. It is still her only word of Spanish!

It is probably the best word in Spanish to know.... : )

Oh! This reminds me.. did you see the pics I posted of last weekend with my father playing guitar? Half of what he was playing was Gypsy-King type music. You can listen to some of his mp3's over here if you like.
