Joy to the World (por Rumba Flamenca) in the Spirit of Zambombas de Jerez

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!

We finally got it done:  our first family-fun video on Youtube for our very own version of the Christmas carol “Joy to the World.”  Yes, it’s January already and we are still in the spirit of Zambombas de Jerez.

And just in time too for the arrival of “The Three Kings” in the Christian holidays (or Los Reyes Magos) for those of you who celebrate.

To thank the old year and welcome the new one, our family thought of making fun of ourselves (particularly us, parents, who are a bit out of tune) and make our own version of the song, in the style of Rumba flamenca, mixed with of some of zambombas/villancicos (or Christmas carols performed in festive Jerezano flamenco style).

Here below are the lyrics, so you can singalong too:

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing

Ya vienen los Reyes Magos (2x)
caminito de Belen
ole ole Holanda ole
Holanda que ya se ve… que ya se ve, que ya se ve…

Cargadito de juguetes (2x)
para el nino entretener
ole ole Holanda ole
Holanda que ya se ve… que ya se ve, que ya se ve…

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy

Ande ande ande… la marimorena…
ande ande ande… que es la nochebuena…
Ande ande ande… la marimorena…
ande ande ande… que es la nochebuena…

Ven ven ven en Nochebuena vente pa Jerez…

Enjoy! Tell us what you think. BIG SMILE!

Audio: recorded, mixed, produced and mastered using an old-school DAW–a Roland VS-1880 between 26 and 30 December 2018, in Barrio San Miguel, Jerez de la Frontera (land of flamenco, sherry, fighting bulls and dancing horses), Spain.
