GIPSY RHUMBA: THE ORIGINAL RHYTHM OF GIPSY RHUMBA IN SPAIN 1965-1974 - VARIOUS

SoulJazz

Records’

new

release

is

the

first

album

ever

outside

of

Spain

to

focus

on

the

history

of

Gipsy

Rhumba

one

of

the

most

interesting

musical

culture

clashes

that

first

took

place

in

the

early

1960s.



In

the

Catalan

region

of

Spain,

gipsies,

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’n’roll

from

America.



As

well

as

a

musical

overview

of

this

unique

art

form,

the

release

comes

with

extensive

contextual

notes

(in

English

and

Spanish)

and

the

photography

of

Jacques

Leonard,

who

documented

gipsy

life

in

the

1960s,

creating

one

of

the

most

important

records

of

their

unique

world

in

the

20th

century.



Gipsy

culture

is

the

original

rebel

form,

existing

outside

of

‘normal

society’,

a

trans-­‐migrant

people

who

value

highly

the

ideas

of

freedom

and

independence.

Today

gipsies

are

established

in

many

European

countries.



At

the

end

of

19th

century,

gipsies

who

settled

in

Southern

Spain

take

hold

of

flamenco,

defined

as

the

‘Andalusian

gipsy’

art.

But

it

is

out

of

the

barrios

of

Barcelona

in

the

North

that

a

new

genre

appears

in

1963:

the

Catalan

Rhumba.

A

crossroads

between

flamenco,

Caribbean

music

and

rock’n’roll,

Catalan

gipsies

develop

a

new

way

of

playing

flamenco

guitar

known

as

the

‘ventilador’,

a

technique

that

combines

the

strumming

of

guitar

strings

whilst

the

palms

of

the

hand

drum

the

rhythm

on

the

body

of

the

guitar.

The

guitar,

the

handclaps

and

certain

songs

originating

from

the

Caribbean

give

birth

to

this

new

style.



The

Catalan

rhumba

built

its

repertoire

on

Caribbean

songs,

especially

from

Cuba

and

Puerto

Rico,

but

also

from

New

York.

However,

its

true

value

is

how

the

essence

of

these

songs

were

used

to

build

a

new

style,

often

with

just

a

guitar

and

some

handclaps.



In

the

1970s

a

new

generation

of

gipsy

rhumba

emerges,

as

the

scene

is

enriched

with

a

variety

of

styles,

and

keyboards,

electric

guitars,

funky

basses

and

wind

sections

appear.

The

vocalists

start

using

more

flamenco

cadences.
