Chants: Companyia Elèctrica Dharma

Chants: Companyia Elèctrica Dharma

This is a very popular song by a well-known Catalan music company.

The song is called “La presó del rei de França” (The prison of the King of France), which is a traditional Catalan song, and people usually chant it jumping and saying “lo” following the melody, as you will see in the video. The song became a must for Barça fans because this music company used to play it during the celebrations in Camp Nou of the titles won by the team. It helped that the music company is from Barcelona as well.

Chants: Esto es un chorreo!

Chants: Esto es un chorreo!

Today we’ll show you the first “anti-madridista” chant (even if it’s a very light one).

Two years ago, former Madrid’s president Vicente Boluda said that Madrid was going to “chorrear” (literally, “to drip”) Liverpool and Barça, meaning that Madrid would beat them soundly, scoring many goals. Liverpool won (4 – 0) and so did Barça (2 – 6) and from then on, the fans have used the word “chorreo” to make fun of Madrid if they lose. Continue reading »

Chants: 1899 neix el club que porto al cor

This week we bring you again a very popular chant both in Camp Nou and in celebrations. Even Piqué livened up the treble celebration in Camp Nou telling the crowd to chant it. The best known part is the ending, so many people only know how to chant this part (the easiest part). Do you know when our club was born? If you didn’t, you’ll know it by heart from now on.

Whatever your reason is, we will offer you all the Barça chants or songs you might find along your culé way.
