It was on may 1994 that Gipsyland played their first live concert, but  we must add Kiko was no stranger to show business. From his childhood he started playingguitar and singing on stage with different groups. Already kiko has that star quality in his voice and guitar playing, that has led him to do several world Tours.

Kiko is the leader of Gipsyland; the group are all from Montpellier, France, near the borders of Spain. Thats where the roots of Kiko and his parents come from; also the region of the Camargue, the earth of Saint Sarah, from where the true blood of gitan comes from.

Kiko exceptional voice and the magic in his fingers when he plays guitar come also from his roots in Andalusia. We must say kiko is unique in his presentation of gipsy music that has conquered the world today.

On top of Kiko, the group consists of four highly talented musicians : MARIO, lead guitar, the “Mozart” gitan, JUANITO, the son of Kiko who has inherited the voice and guitar playing from his father, TONINO and BABE cousins in perfect musical harmony.

Their music is for every culture, Gipsyland interpretation of modern update flamenco, with its fresh attack and modern beats, make Gipsyland unique in its style world-wide for everyone.
