Mosaïque is the fourth studio album by the Gipsy Kings, released in 1989 in Europe and Canada. The main difference between both versions is the replacement of the instrumental "Bossamba" on the Europe release for "Niña Morena" on the North American release. The song order also changes on both albums and songs "Caminando Por la Calle", "Trista Pena" and "Vamos a Bailar" are slightly different versions.

Note that "Viento Del Arena" is a studio album release from the song appearing in Luna de Fuego. It was sung as Turkish by Volkan Konak, Turkish folk singer as "Lilalı Kız" ("Girl with lilac") at his 3rd album, "Gelir Misin Benimle" ("Do you come with me?") in 1994.
