Mini-disco in Spain/Canaries – favourite songs and dances

thumbnailThis year we spent vacation in Gran Canaria and Tenerife. For us the choice was largely driven by the Canaries having sun and warmth at times of the year (April and October respectively) when most other beach/sun holiday locations that are within sensible travel are cooler.  It did however introduce us to the world of ‘Mini-disco’, which our children (aged 3 and half, and 20 months) both loved.

‘Mini-disco’ typically consists of children’s songs (the sort that you might typically have heard at children’s birthday parties).  Groups of children then often dance, sometimes on a stage, in rhythm with each other (or not!), sometimes led through a dance routine by an adult.  The ages of the children can vary from toddlers who have barely begun to walk, almost up to teenagers.

For the children involved, mini-disco can help develop social skills, help overcome shyness, and, perhaps most importantly, be enormous fun.

Mini-disco is often also a ‘hit’ also with parents, in that it helps tire out the children, and thereby help send them to bed on time.  On the downside, it can result in rushed dinners in order to arrive at the dancefloor/stage on time.

On the occasions that we had the opportunity to participate in ‘Mini-disco’ the following songs were played, all being classic examples of ‘mini-disco’ at its best (click on song name for clip of music, or click on lyrics for the … lyrics!):

Songs are often in their original languages, as well as alternatives (typically English, Italian, Spanish, and sometimes also French and German).  Searching for any of these songs on YouTube will likely result in numerous examples of private handycam videos of mini-disco dances, as well as occasional pop videos from Europop bands.

All of these songs, and many others can be found in the album ‘Minidisco International Songs’, by Django Music / DD Company (website link here).  The website contains short 20-30 second snippets from the songs and links to the songs on iTunes (with a couple of exceptions where in some cases the link is not shown, but iTunes nevertheless does have the songs). The website also contains song lyrics.  Searching for the song names on iTunes will also result in numerous other covers of the songs being found.

What is your experience with ‘mini-disco’?  What is your favourite song?  Do you have links to any good mini-disco songs/videos?

  1. please, if you find the song, where the lyrics are like “bailando bamba e, bailando bamba o” please, publish that song. i can’t find it anywhere. i heard it in 2009 year in Turkey, in the hotel “limak arcadia golf resort”. thank you very much!!

    • I spent hours trying to track this one down and today I finally found it!!… Its not commercially available even though its the official family welcome song of the cananry islands but if you go to the official canary island tourism website and on the homepage follow the link to their multimedia centre, then click on audio, it will let you download it free if you have quicktime 7 pro from apple… 🙂

  23. Years ago I went abroad to Cyprus and a song came on. My family still debate over what it is called and I am trying to find it..

    • Someone (“kat020881”) was kind enough, or crazy enough (depending on which way you see it!), to post a video of the actions on YouTube (together with the song of course), so if anyone’s not familiar with ‘The Court of King Caractacus’, here it is:

  58. DOES ANY ONE KNOW THIS SONG? I came back from egypt and the mini disco played a german song (i think) about looking for a monster or a lion.at the start the children seem to be digging. the next verse they are climbing 5000 meters , the last verse they are singing about something being smelly. at the end of the chorus the children all roar.
    kind regardsxx

  71. Hi

    I’m trying to find a song that we used to play at mini disco when I was a kids rep and can’t for the life of me remember what it is called or find it on the internet. Its something along the lines of “now Old King Cole, was a merry old soul and he danced all over the world….” the song takes you on a journey to different places such as London and you do a cockney dance, France – can can, Egypt – egyptian dance. Can anyone help as I need to find this song for my nephews birthday party.

    many thanks.

  72. Hi I am looking for a song that goes like this. Ging drily wiky fingy dongy yong yang yaka gala roly yum tum. Does anyone no it.

  74. looking for a song where the girls sing a ri a ri and the boys a si a si

  75. I’m looking for a song that we heard in Spain. It goes a bit like this (I’m just writing down how it sounded): spindi moni, spindi moni, padapadam, spindi moni, spindi moni, padapadam. oh suga is all is a suga, oh suga is all is a suga, waw waw waw waw waw chiuaua, waw waw waw waw waw chiuaa. The moves in the dance start with “hanging your clothes on a line”. At first you make big moves, in the second verse you make small moves and last you make big moves again.

  76. Hi all! I am desperate to find a beautiful song! It’s italian song from mini-disco which I heard this year in Greece. I think it’s about the pirates, because it starts with something like “la paura” and has a very fast upbeat tempo and a lot of words and many people singing with main male vocal leading. Kids are jumping all around and doing movements like they’re diving (to the lyrics something lile “gluck gluck gluck”). Can this be something from Zecchino d’Oro or maybe some pirates story like peter pan (but it’s not the song from the musical). Any ideas are welcome!!!

    • Hello,
      I Need this song too. Does anyone have it?

  81. Looking for an English Translation for the mini disco song: Yo Tengo Un Cochecito
    When I put the lyrics into a translate site, they don’t translate to make sense (not all of them). Any help appreciated.
    Here’s the lyrics:

    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo

    Yo tengo un cochecito
    yo tengo un cochecito
    muy simpatico
    que no le gusta andar por
    donde hay trafico
    los coches le marean de tanto pitar
    prefiere siempre andar por la gran ciudad
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo

    yo tengo un cochecito
    muy simpatico
    que no le gusta andar por
    donde hay trafico
    los coches le marean de tanto pitar
    prefiere siempre andar por la gran ciudad
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo
    pitipopopopo pitipopopopo

    • Sure

      > pitipopopopo pitipopopopo

      this is just onomatopoeic non-sensical sounds

      The rest is

      > i have a little car, i have a little car
      > he’s very nice/friendly
      > doesn’t like to go around
      > where there’s busy traffic
      > other cars make him dizzy with all the honking
      > he always prefers to go around the big city

  82. Anyone know a mini disco song that is super high pitched and squeaky like a chipmunks song!

  83. Probably a long-shot, but I heard a song in Ibiza back in ’05 at the mini-disco that the kids danced to EVERY night, and I believe it was in Spanish. I think it went something like “…we do la brancha”? Or something like that, (that part was sung by a female I think, and then had a male in the background saying something in Spanish.) and I vaguely recall another part of the song (chorus I think) that sounded something like: “da-da-da-da la huna”???? or Hunda? Omg haha I have no idea…Been trying to find it for years, to no avail. 😦 Sorry it’s such a terrible description, but I loved that song…

  107. Hi, I’ve just come back from holiday (May 2025) in Lanzarote at the Be Live Family Resort, in the evenings they would play a song that went

    Chiccolatte chiccolatte ooh chiccolatte

    It would say something that I sang as
    ‘come to the party come to the party come to the party ohh chiccolatte’
    But the come to the party bit was Spanish not English I just made up those words. The animation team including Kiko would get the audience on stage and we’d do a dance which was moving in a circle on your own as if you were whisking a bowl of eggs or kneading dough! Very random and then everyone would go oooooohhh and move there hands up in the air and back again. The chiccolatte but was the main chorus!

    Dying to know what it was!! Can Anyone help?!

    Just come back from sa coma, majorca and can’t find a song my daughter loved. It was in the club dances after the mini disco and entertainment. Don’t know much apart from you kick your leg in a circle and count to 7 lol
    Can anyone help?

  136. Hello I’ve been looking for a holiday/dance song since way back in 2002, the kids learnt a dance to it and it said something like poerro porrero (I have the tune in my head but obvs that’s not much help) in the chorus we learnt this one and also a dance to chihuahua so it was around the same time! Any idea??

    • Poerro porrero… not Veo Veo perchance? Look it up on YouTube and you’ll see if it’s the same tune.

      As for Chihuahua… could it be Chu Chu Ua? Again, worth looking up on YouTube.
