Event Details:


Come enjoy a memorable evening with Chico & the Gypsies performing their legendary songs in a stunning atmosphere, with a 5-stars tapas dinner

After having performed their legendary songs in March at L’Olympia in Paris or in June at Baalbeck Festival in Lebanon, Chico and the Gypsies are in Doha for 3 exclusive live concerts this month.

The concerts will take place at La Cigale Hotel in the Al Wajba Ballroom on the 26th, 27th and 28th of November.

The Al Wajba Ballroom is one of the most magnificent venues in Doha, allowing its guests to fully enjoy a one-of-a-kind seated dinner and live performance, which will plunge them into a Spanish and Gypsy-themed atmosphere. For the concert dinner, the chefs have prepared a special high end tapas themed cuisine.

The concert ballroom will open at 7.30 pm for the dinner and the concert will start at 8.15 pm

Co-founder of the “Gipsy Kings”, Chico is a real music legend. With over 20 million albums sold worldwide, co-author of songs such as Bamboleo, Djobi Djoba, Baila Me, Volare, Chico made the whole world dance to the infectious beats of his gipsy guitars. It is usually difficult to resist feet tapping and dancing when those energetic and colorful melodies are played.
Chico has been nominated “United Nations special envoy for peace” due to his humanitarian endeavors and his universal music.

Originally, Chico and his band are from the south of France and they sing in Spanish.

Their music is described as rumba flamenca; many of their songs are influenced by Spanish flamenco, Afro-Cuban rhythms, salsa, and pop. As Gypsies, these travelers also picked up Arabic, Indian and Middle Eastern musical influences along the way, which resonate in their songs.

Chico and the Gypsies do collaborate with many renowned artists and cover some of the most popular songs such as Aznavour’s La Boheme or Sinatra’s My Way. They also often revisit classic Rai or Arabic songs such as Boualem.
