What is Zambomba

“Zambomba” is a musical percussion instrument in Latin America and Spain, that people use to accompany the Christmas gatherings with family, friends and neighbors. It also means actually “the Christmas fiesta” itself. In these fiestas, people sing the “villancicos” (viyancicos) , Christmas songs, mostly in choirs.

The first “Zambomba Flamenca” took place in 2009 in Athens / Greece aiming to support organisations that help children. This year we celebrate 10 years of “Zambomba Flamenca” in Amsterdam, Athens, Brussels and Gelsenkirchen!

Flamenco artists from the Netherlands and Greece will share the same stage to sing, dance, and interact united celebrating Christmas and supporting at the same time the work of Christodoulion Orphanage in Athens / Greece.

Why do we support Christodoulio orphanage?

“Christodoulio” is an orphanage that supports children in special family needs.
Right now they host 34 children, aged from 3 to 23 years old and they provide housing, food, medical support and education.

Children are very well in health, they have a normal life at school, together with other children and all of this has been supported from private initiative and the good willing of some people who have seen the great effort and hard work for the children the last 70 years.

Yota Baron who runs and organizes flamenco events through “Yota Baron Flamenco y Producciones”, grew up in a similar orphanage. Please visit www.xristodoulio.gr/ and use google translate 🙂
