Rumba Flamenco lives in our hearts. Sangre Gitana is based out of El Paso, Texas, in the crossroads of a musical melting pot where all music can be made vibrant by infusing Spanish soul and Flamenco passion. Sangre Gitana exemplifies this marriage of rhythms.
The band was discovered back in 1997 with an idea from musicians David Romo, Cesar Ivan and Stefan Schyga and even the Gipsy Kings themselves. Frank Hernandez, Hugo Gonzalez, Juan Angel Sermeno and Riccardo Liara Hernandez took the style of the Gipsy Kings to a whole new level.
Over the years the band took on names such as "Arose is a Arose" and Rosa Blanca, until we met the Gipsy Kings backstage in El Paso, TX and the Lead Singer "Nicolas Reyes" gave us the title of SANGRE GITANA. In his words..."you shall be known as SANGRE GITANA, you are now a part of our family."
