How to sing like the Gipsy Kings?

Hi--first post, just got approved!

Could you analyze this passage in terms of CVT? Mainly, 1:03-1:13 And how would you approach learning it?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I would practice medium Edge on the vowel "A"/and, ascend in pitch gradually going towards Edge-like Neutral.
Then locate the "right" sound color - especially open nasal passage and (I think) lifted palate.
After that, I would practice distortion so I could add and remove it at will.

Makes sense?

I was looking at it as overdrive, but my voice did not want to go there! I suspected it might be edge. Thank you, and I will get working on it! :D
