Yerbabuena - La Casa Gitana

Zambomba flamenca-gitana

Yerbabuena - La Casa Gitana

The origins of what we know today as the Flamenco-Gypsy Zambomba can be traced back to the gatherings that used to take place in neighbours’ houses as night fell on Christmas Eve. Families would crowd around the central fire, sharing food and merriment, singing Christmas carols and popular flamenco songs together, accompanied by the musical instrument that gives its name to the festival: the gypsy zambomba (hand drum). This show presented by La Casa Gitana features a troupe of top-notch musicians and dancers set on reviving these traditional gypsy festivities.
