7 epic versions of „The Little Drummer Boy“
Christmas classical is an all-time favorite
Did you know? “The Little Drummer Boy” is more than 70 years old. The popular Christmas carol was written in 1941 by the American composer and music teacher Katherine Davis and has toured the world since then. It has been translated into many languages and is frequently performed by choirs, artists and in families all over the world each Christmas.
The song is about a little boy, who comes to Bethlehem to see the newborn Jesus Christ. Since he is too poor to bring a gift to the child, he plays on his drum for the newborn. The child seems to understand and thanks with a smile.
Here’s a collection of some classical, very special and recently released versions to blow your minds. It includes stars like The King’s Singers and Pentatonix, an Africanized version, a Nordic version and a real classic: Bing Crosby in duet with the late David Bowie.
