“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 organizations that help children.
Since then, we present performarnces in Greece, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, hosting flamenco artists, dancers, musicians and choirs in a unique and joyful celebration, always in order to support and help Christodoulio Orphanage.
Why do we support Christodoulio orphanage?
“Christodoulio” is an orphanage that supports children in special family needs. Right now they hosts 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.
