Zambomba!, or Spanish caroling at the Cracow Dominicans. Guitars, flamenco carols and dance – all this during a special event, which will take place on January 15, at 16:00, at 12 Stolarska Street in Cracow.
Zambomba is the name of a folk percussion instrument from Andalusia. It is played during the Christmas season while performing flamenco carols (the so-called villancicos flamencos). But Zambomba is also a festive fun, during which families and friends meet in the streets, squares and lit fires together to play instruments, sing and celebrate.
We invite you to such a meeting – full of music and dance! It will be led by the Krakow Historic Flamenco Group “Almoraima”. We will hear both flamenco carols and traditional Spanish villancicos, all accompanied by guitar and other traditional instruments, as well as a capella.
The “Almoraima” Historical Ensemble is made up of people of all ages and professions who have been brought together by their passion for dance and Spanish culture. Pupils, teachers and supporters of “Almoraima” have been connected with the Krakow School of Flamenco “Almoraima” and the Krakow Cultural Forum for years. The director and choreographer is Małgorzata Drzał OPs and the guitarist is Grzegorz Guzik OPs.
The group’s repertoire includes various forms of flamenco dance, historical Spanish dance and some varieties of oriental dance.
