Estepona welcomes flamenco from Jerez on Boxing Day, December 26 at the Felipe VI Auditorium from 6pm.
‘La zambomba’ is the local name for traditional Christmas festivities in Jerez and constitute the main activity in which everyone participates at that time of the year.
Local wines, traditional pastries and Christmas carols called ‘flamencados’ are the main ingredients of the ‘zambombas’ that take place and the origins of this unique Christmas festivity are based on the local communities and friendship.
Impromptu gatherings take place in the patios, where neighbours share food and wines and sing songs with rhythms which are an essential part of popular culture.
Guitarist, writer and producer Luis de Perikin grew up in this tradition and in 2010 created a special concert which translates in English to ‘This is how Jerez sings at Christmas’ using local artists from the youngest to the oldest to share the spirit of ‘La zambomba’ with other regions in Andalucia.
Visit https://tafestepona.entradas.plus to purchase tickets for this one night only concert which cost €20 plus booking fee.
