In some families, music is in the genes. The Gipsy Kings, formed by the Reyes and Baliardos brothers, exemplify this theory.
The Reyes brothers got their start by backing their father, Jose, who helped popularize flamenco music internationally. The Gipsy Kings began playing Rumba Catalana, a pop-oriented version of the of flamenco, and have acquired a base of fans from across the world without the help of MTV and other mainstream channels.
