The debut disc from France's Gipsyland brings together flamenco flavors and gypsy cultural influences with a strong pop overlay. Although a French band, the group sings in Spanish and vocalist Kiko Motos retains all the vibrant gypsy fire and passion in his emoting. Produced by the same team that brought you Cher's "Believe," there's a lustrous pop sheen to the whole proceedings that should win points in the Y2K Latin Music Explosion. An intriguing mix. ~ Cub Koda
