Peret first rocked the rumba back around 1970, and three decades on he's showing that he hasn't lost a creative step yet. Here he's electrified the music and given it a definite international edge, letting it flow in all manner of different contexts, from the more traditional style with Jarabe de Palo to salsa-frying the beat with France's Sergent Garcia and even adding bits of ragga and electronica into the mix. Does it work? Surprisingly, yes, it does, and very well. Get past that and you're home free with a disc that makes you realize the rumba always rocked - it had been merely hiding its true colors. Peret's gritty voice gives an earthiness to the sound, taking the rhythm by the tail and dragging it along, while the guests - and there are no shortage of them on this record - become just the icing on the cake.
In 2001, Peret recorded and released Rey De La Rumba (King of the Rumba) an album of updated versions of his older songs with guest musicians including Jarabe de Palo, El Gran Silencio, David Byrne of the Talking Heads, and more. Peret died in Barcelona, Spain from lung cancer, aged 79. Select discography.
The Catalan rumba (Catalan: rumba catalana, IPA: ) is a genre of music that developed in Barcelona's Romani community beginning in the 1950s. Its rhythms are derived from the Andalusian flamenco rumba, with influences from Cuban music and rock and roll. The Catalan rumba originated in the Catalan Romani communities in the Gràcia, carrer (street) de la Cera del Raval and Hostafrancs neighborhoods.

The band led by Antoni Sicus Carbonell is a huge legend in Catalan rumba, a genre they’ve been performing up and down the country for over twenty years. Having taken songs of every kind to rumba territory (from Boig per tu to D'un temps, d'un país), they are now paying tribute to one of the genre’s greats: the maestro Peret. They've done that in an album and a show that revives Pere Pubill Calaf's best-known songs: a journey through the history of rumba that ranges from Borriquito to Gitana hechicera.
