“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.
