Flamenco at the balconies
Homage to Gabriela the Bell, in its 500th anniversary
August 20 12:00 h
This year, the opening of the Flamenco on the Balconies Cycle has a very special goal: offer homage to Gabriela the Bell in its 500th anniversary.
The Bell was casted on July 18, 1519 and today it still keeps its installation. It was baptized with the name Archangel Gabriel, whose message about the Incarnation is completely engraved in Latin in its center. It is considered the most valuable and complex bell of the Santa María La Real complex.
On August 20, the Cathedral’s Music Chapel, an institution that has remained active since its inception in 1206, will perform the three Angelus invocations, which precisely make reference to Archangel Saint Gabriel in its Hail to Virgin Mary. Every plea of the Angelus, combined with the Gabriela Bell, will be sung in the three official languages of the liturgy of the Diocese of Pamplona: Latin, Spanish and Basque.
Immediately after, Gabriella will ring again by the hand of Josemi and Juan Carmona, opening the sixth edition of the Festival and leading way to the brave singer David de Jacoba and Rancapino Chico singing a martinete. This type of sound has its origins in the gypsy forges of Cadiz, Jerez and Seville and will fill the streets of the Pamplona capital in honor of Gabriela the Bell.

Flamenco overtakes the streets of the city, invading with art and music the most symbolic plazas and the most beautiful corners of Pamplona. Small recitals with traditional format will be offered in Calle la Mañueta, the City Council Plaza and the balconies of the Hotel la Perla of Plaza del Castillo in Pamplona from Wednesday August 21 through Sunday August 25.
