This self-titled GYPSY STAR CD debuts the band’s creative style and enchanting sound in this collection of original songs.
A unique band from the Tampa Bay area of Florida, Gypsy Star fuses American musical styles of folk, rock, pop and jazz with sounds and rhythms from around the world. The name Gypsy Star was inspired by the carefree spirit of the gypsies whose music was influenced by the many countries they traveled. Tapping into Latin, Celtic and Mediterranean flavors… Gypsy Star weaves a colorful melodic tapestry of enchanting, uplifting music with acoustic instruments such as classical flamenco guitar, woodwinds and an array of hand percussion and drums. The mystique behind this American folk-rock band's songs lie at the creative hand of guitarist/composer Billy Keen who combines his own musical roots in rock with an exotic global influence. The result is an inspiring and eclectic experience appealing to both mainstream and world music audiences alike.
Follow Gypsy Star as they take you along on a musical, mystical journey to faraway lands as did the nomadic travels of gypsy performers who’ve gone before them ~ awakening your soul and opening your heart to exciting, mysterious and wonderful places!
