"Djobi, Djoba"

"Djobi, Djoba" is a hit song by the Gipsy Kings, a French-Calé Rumba Flamenca band, from their 1988 self-titled album. Along with other hits from the same album such as "Bamboléo" and "Un Amor", "Djobi Djoba" helped rocket the Gipsy Kings to European popularity, before they gained popularity in America in 1989. In 1989, Gipsy Kings was released in the US and it spent 40 weeks on the charts, one of very few Spanish language albums to do so.

"Djobi Djoba" is a local Spanish expression meaning "easy promiscuous girl", popularised by Jonathan and Philip, the 2 singers of the band "The QA group".[1]
