We sing "Aguinaldos", "Parrandas", and "Gaitas" - aka Venezuelan Christmas Carols. The term "Los Parranderos" is close in meaning to the expression "The Party Goers" and it refers to the happiness, laughter, and good disposition to enjoy life.

Hi there, we are Los Parranderos. We sign "Aguinaldos" and "Gaitas" - Venezuelan Christmas Carols.

Aguinaldos began as a derived form of the Spanish “Villancicos”, with lyrics and music adapted to the customs and daily life of each Venezuelan region. Gaitas come from the state of Zulia, in Venezuela.

Aguinaldos and Gaitas are usually accompanied by “cuatro” (four-stringed guitar), “tambor” (drum), “chapero” (an improvised tambourine), “furro” or “furruco” (a single note bass), amongst other instruments.

We have been carolling and doing charity events over Metro Vancouver for the past 20+ years. Yule Duel is a great benefit event that aligns with our community values so we are happy to be invited to participate again in 2018.

Please, come and see us at Yule Duel 2018! Vote for us (or your favourite choir) and contribute to this great fundraising event for  May's Place.

We are sure you are going to like what you see. It is for a great cause and, besides, 'tis the Season for Giving.

Merry Christmas!

Yule Duel is Carolling for a Cause

Yule Duel brings together choirs from across the Lower Mainland to sing Christmas carols loud and proud from the sidewalks of Gastown. The best in show go head-to-head in a series of sing-offs on the main stage. All proceeds benefit May's Place.

For over 25 years May’s Place has offered care and compassion to vulnerable and marginalized people in the Downtown Eastside. May’s Place delivers end-of-life care to about 50 people each year, ensuring that their last days are filled with dignity, warmth, and kindness.

Often times our patients’ lives have been touched by extreme poverty, homelessness, abuse, mental health issues and addictions. At May’s Place, they are welcomed warmly, treated with respect, and surrounded by friends, family, and caregivers.

May's Place is operated by The Bloom Group, a nonprofit registered charity that has provided health, housing and social services for over 50 years.

Your donation provides dignity, warmth, and kindness to vulnerable people when they need it most.

Thank you for making a donation today.

Save the Date: Yule Duel is   December 6, 2018.

Choirs take to to Water Street December 6, 2018.
