If you like Gipsy Kings...Chiquetete is the master

"For those of us who have lived in Spain, when the french group Gipsy Kings hit big time in the late 80s we were somewhat dissapointed, as Gipsy pop had been done in Spain since the 60s with better lyrics and variety.One example of Spain's flamenco - pop is Chiquetete,
who has been doing music since the 1970s.
Unlike others in this category, Chiquetete is
a very stylish and elegant singer. His productions
contained string sections and were nicely
produced rythm balads co-written with legendary
Paco Cepero.To put it in simple terms, its kind of like
if Claudio Baglioni or Ricardo Fogli were
doing flamenco-pop, except that Chiquetete
has a tremendous voice that would blow the
two of those combined, away!"
