«IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE DAYLY WILL BECOME A HISTORY SO THAT THE HISTORY IS HISTORY OF ALL»
(FRANCO FERRAROTI 1991).

I have developed a taste and interest for discourses aside from the "History in capitals", as in the case of zambomba celebration. Thus, one of my main objectives is to contribute to the creation of a history that belongs to the whole society, regardless of class, race or gender.

What is the zambomba?

The zambomba, besides being a well know as a Christmas instrument in the Spanish imaginary, is also a celebration held in Advent.  Its geographical core is located in the "Baja Andalusia", at different populations including Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), my hometown.  Its preservation along the 20th century and its subsequent boom in the 21st century, made possible the official recognition as musical Cultural Interest of Spain's historical heritage in 2015.
