BEJUCAL BRASS BANDS (CHARANGAS DE BEJUCAL)
The deeply rooted traditions of the town closest to the capital’s international airport José Martí, come alive during the last days of the year. Then the “charangueros”, divided into two bands, establish a friendly competition carrying out the most varied activities atop their carriages. The final show takes place in the old church plaza and starts very early from the headquarters of each band, where many town people meet in order to follow their favourite carriages from where they were built. The parade through the streets becomes a prelude of the “charangas” show, while fire works, laughter, screams and the strong conga music from each band are heard, announcing the beginning of a great night.
