The Municipal Band of Jimena was born with the intention of creating a stable ‘culture of music’ and also to serve as an alternative educational facility and leisure activity for the young of the municipality.
Directed by María Jesús Herrero, there are now some 40 young people ranging in ages from 8 to 18 taking part from all over Jimena. They have until now been seen heading parades and processions at Christmas, New Year and Easter, as well as during the International Music Festival and other events. The Gaucín event means a further step forward in the band’s development and the opening of new horizons.
We at JimenaPulse have followed the band’s progress over the years and are very pleased to see this new venture taking shape. It is customary for similar district bands to perform in other municipalities, which also means a considerable contribution to their often diminished coffers.
¡Enhorabuena, chicos y chicas!
