Origins of the Gypsy’s: The Asian Origins
Camargue’s Gypsy left the north of India and migrated to Egypt and crossed continents to settle permanently in Spain for centuries. Some decided to move from Spain to stop their caravans within 200 km of “Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer”. The town of the relics of Santa Sara, the black virgin and protective mother of the Gypsies, rest in the crypt of a magnificent fortified church.
Manitas de Plata: the father of popular gypsy music
Manitas De Plata (Ricardo Baliardo) and then with his band “Los Baliardos” (consisting of his brother Hippolyte, his son Joseph and his cousin José Reyes) creates the gypsy’s popular music and did sold over than 93 million albums worldwide. He was “ The Capo’’ of the Gypsy land, the Camargue.
The Baliardo’s, Reyes’ and Motos’ families have carried out the tradition of their ancestor by bringing new sounds, making gypsy music a must of the today’s world music.
