Peret: The King of Gypsy Rumba

Get your rumba moving! This documentary is an intimate portrait and at the same time a tribute to Peret (aka the King of the Catalan rumba) forever and ever, amen.

With testimonies of his grandchildren and friends the documentary intimately reveals Peret’s “bombastic life”, based on matters at home and after-dinner chats at the bar, plus a motherload of archive material and humorous dramatizations. From the outskirts of Mataró to Barcelona’s central Raval neighbourhood.

A documentary that doesn’t shy away from tackling a complex personality, borne of the tension between the gypsy and “payo” (non-gypsy) communities, between poverty and wealth, between the truth and the picaresque. 50 years after the hit “Borriquito”, the film is a portrait of this great music icon and a tribute to Catalan Rumba music – one of the very few musical genres created on the streets of Europe in the 20th century-.
