Fiesta of the Cuadrillas in Barranda.
Every year on the last Sunday in January, the town of Barranda in Murcia celebrates this festivity in which numerous bands, known as 'cuadrillas', sing and perform in the streets.
A total of around 15 groups from all over Spain take part in the event. Throughout the morning the groups take up their positions around the squares and streets, where they sing and dance in the midst of the crows of onlookers. After lunch come the 'choques de cuadrillas', or battles of the bands, in which pairs of bands simultaneously vie to outdo each other while performing together. At the end of the day, all the bands gather in the town's Social Club where the festivities continue until the early hours of the morning.
