The original music of Gypsy Star artfully fuses indie folk rock with sounds and rhythms from around the world. Imagine if Fleetwood Mac, Blackmore’s Night, Loreena McKennitt and the Gipsy Kings got together to form a new band… it might sound very much like Gypsy Star.
Drawing from the universal hopes and aspirations of the human experience, Gypsy Star weaves a colorful tapestry of enchanting, uplifting music with classical flamenco guitar, violin, bass, drums and an array of hand percussion along with sultry pop vocals and melodic harmonies.
The mystique behind this dynamic folk rock band's songs lie at the creative hand of guitarist/composer Billy Keen who merges his own musical roots in American rock, folk and blues with a more global influence tapping into Spanish, Celtic, Renaissance, Mediterranean, Caribbean and Latin flavors. Long time bandmate, vocalist/percussionist Belinda Brodsky, breathes poetry into Keen’s tunes with lyrics that capture the essence of ancient tales, the insight of modern storytelling and the charm of timeless, heartfelt sentiments. Rounding out Gypsy Star's signature sound are musically-gifted bandmates Steve Roberts on bass, Bonnie Deeds on violin and Kana Leimbach on drums. On special performances… folkloric dancer, Kimara Lee, complements the band’s music through the art of movement.
Gypsy Star’s rock-pop-world-beat fusion music is brought to life with exciting live shows that are a cultural feast for the eyes and ears!
