Soul Jazz Records’ new release is the first album ever outside of Spain to seriously focus on the history of Gipsy Rhumba, one of the most interesting musical culture clashes ever that first took place in the early 1960s.

 

 Here in the Catalan region of Spain, Gypsies primarily known as the creators of Flamenco, came up with a fascinating hybrid style – Gipsy Rhumba – which blended together Latin and Rhumba music of Cuba and the Caribbean together with their own Flamenco as well as the emerging Rock and Roll from America.

 

This album is a lovingly compiled epic that has taken nearly five years to make! The album comes with a stunning 60 page booklet that tells this unique story of how this latin-tinged music came about in the heart of Spain's gypsy community.

 

As well as a musical overview of this unique art form (in English and Spanish) , this release also features the stunning  photography of Jacques Leonard, a French photographer who began documenting Gypsy life in rural and urban Spain in the 1960s after marrying a Spanish gypsy, creating in the process one of the most important records of this unique world in the 20th century.

 

The album is put together by two of Spain's most important Gipsy Rhumba specialists - compiler David El Indio and  sleevenotes by  Jose Manuel Gómez (Gufi).

 

This album comes in 3 formats:

 

1) Deluxe  CD pack with 60 pages of text and photographs (over two booklets!) including main notes, photography, notes on each artist and tracks and original cover art.

 

2) Heavyweught gatefold double vinyl (with full sleevenotes in 28 page pullout booklet plus free download code)

 

3) Worldwide Digital release

MORE REVIEWS:

"a capsule of supercharged clapping and joyous vocals" The Guardian/Observer


"Must-have" "You all know Gipsy Kings' blend of flamenco and Latin rhythms… but where did this convergence of Latin music styles occur? This compilation demonstrates how mid-1960's Barcelona hothoused gypsy musicians who employed the rumba rhythm… Gipsy Rhumba unearths a forgotten corner of Europop." The Sunday Times

**** "Musicologists aren’t the only ones who will enjoy pulling at the threads that bind this particular sound clash….Messing with the traditional form is daring at any time, but the result was something quite fantastic, potent and intriguing, full of marvellous grooves and compelling rhythms." Irish Times


***** ”A victory for gipsy party music… A collection worthy of conquering the world” Dagens Nyheter, Sweden


"The great hidden treasure of Spanish music: pop rumba , especially ... Catalan rumba, which peaked commercially during the sixties and seventies . However, in its country of origin, rumba discographically speaking, has diappeared… Hence the relevance of Gipsy Rhumba in Spain from 1965 to 1974 , an anthology released by Soul Jazz . The discerning London-based company"  El Pais, Spain

"punchy , rhythmic and popular …Specialist Rumba research starts here with this Compilation "Gipsy Rhumba", released by the London Soul Jazz label. Another genre of pop history." Junge Welt, Germany

“Be warned, you’ll want to dance… boiling hot and authentic” Trois Couleurs, France


“The compilation ‘Gipsy Rhumba’, in a luxurious edition complete with a thick bilingual booklet, contains 20 tracks… that reveal the enormous breadth of gipsy music.” CULTurMAG, Germany
