The origin of the Zambomba goes back to the 18th century, coinciding with the time right before Christmás.  The patios of the most flamenco neighborhoods of Jerez would see gatherings of people around a bonfire where they would enjoy the typical food and drink of the season, and share traditional songs of the season.  And so the tradition has survived to our time.  An authentic flamenco fiesta as in the past, with the singing of villancicos to the sound of the instrument called the zambomba, accompanied by guitar, tambourines and anisette bottles used for percussion.

A Zambomba Flameca is a show for all audiences, whether flamenco fans or not, including a large number of foreigners who come to these events to enjoy the most authentic music of our country.  This Zambomba has everything, flamenco, Christmas and culture, all in one.
