Allegria is the debut studio album by the Gipsy Kings, released in 1982 in Europe.[1]

Overview[edit]

This album and its successor, Luna de Fuego, are very different from their later albums. They are both "unplugged" and traditional, using solely guitars, voices, and hand claps. The album includes two songs never released on a U.S. album ("Pharaon" and "Recuerda") and the original acoustic version of "Djobi Djoba".

In 1990, the album was merged with Luna de Fuego, while omitting certain tracks for a re-release to a US audience as Allegria (US Version).
