In the spirit of the season, here’s the first of our own version of Christmas songs by kids performed in festive Jerezano flamenco style called “Zambomba”. This one is (hopefully) a refreshing, family-friendly take on “Joy to the World” in English and in the style of Rumba Flamenca on the guitar, mixed with popular Villancicos Navideños (Christmas carols in Spanish). I know, that’s a LOT of mixing. That’s our life now. 🙂
We think it will cheer you up because us parents made a fool of ourselves by actually singing . . . and out of tune at that! But hey, we all had fun 😂
It was already late in the season last Christmas when we actually got down to recording this idea to turn English Christmas carols into Zambomba, mix things up for bilingual kids, give it the “Jerezano groove” and have fun father-sons, family time.
It was hard to get the boys to record then. Now, we have several more lined up, waiting to get finished. We’re a little slow in mixing the audio and making the videos. But we’ll get it all out. . . eventually.
