Christmas songs in Spainish
Does anyone know actual Christmas songs that are Spanish or should I just look up my favorite Christmas songs that I already know in English into Spanish
Well 'Feliz Navidad' by José Feliciano is the easiest to learn and is one of the more popular Spanish Christmas songs. I've also learnt 'La Marimorena' by Los Chunguitos, which is the pop variant of the traditional song, plus I would take a look at 'Noche de Paz', which is Silent Night in Spanish.
Personally my favorite "villancicos" (carols) are "Los Peces En El Rio" y "Mi Burrito Sabanero". Both can be found on youtube. There are many more villancicos tradicionales that you can look up if you want to not only hear Christmas songs in Spanish but explore Spanish/Latin American culture. The above are just my favorites.
Here you are a short list of Christmas carols (villancicos) with ther equivalents in English
- Rodolfo el reno (Rudolph the rednosed reindeer)
- Blanca navidad (White Christmas)
- Noche de paz (Silent night)
- El niño del tambor (The little Drummer boy)
- Paseo en trineo (Sleigh Ride)
Here's a list of popular Villancicos that don't have a version in English
- Arre borriquito, de Denisse de Kalafe
- Mi burrito Sabanero, de Pedrito Fernández
- Los peces en el río, de Pandora
- El año viejo, de Tony Camargo
- Campana sobre campana, de Yuri
Also, some popular albums
- Navidades Luis Miguel
- Navidad Eterna
- Navidad con Tatiana, for kids
- Navidad mágica (de Tatiana), for kids
- Navidades con la Sonora Matancera
Keep in mind that the same song may have different versions in Spanish (each one with completely different lyrics). For example, I know al least three versions of Jingle Bells (Celia Cruz,Luis Miguel, Tatiana)
¡Feliz navidad y próspero año nuevo!
