FERIA JUNIANA BAND

FERIA JUNIANA BAND

San Pedro Sula, industrial capitol of Honduras, in the heart of Central America, celebrates its Feria Juniana in June.

 

This celebration is a commitment to its own culture and traditions that intertwine magnificently with elements of fantasy for which it is classified as the most important fair of the country.

 

The group will this year participate in the Batabano Cayman Carnival with its Fair Juniana Band, an allegorical sample of the ethnic wealth and culture of the country.

 

The Creole rhythms such as Huapango Chorotega, Los Caballitos and Bananero are mixed this time with the sound of the drum and the snail of the Garífuna culture, an ethnic group that since its arrival and settlement in the Honduran coasts in the year of 1,797 have enriched it with its contagious rhythms.

 

The rhythm of its dances and its mother tongue was declared by UNESCO as the intangible heritage of humanity in May 2001. Dances such as Punta, Yancunú and Paranda added to the arrangement of the national composer Manu Martínez with his theme musical Wendeti Nagaira  and are an invitation to know and enjoy Honduras as a country of five stars.

 

A wardrobe with the colors of the Lenca ethnic "tall stick", an adaptation of blue and white suits, colors of the national pavilion and multicolored clothing characteristics of the garinagus make this representation stand out.

 

As an initiative of Debbie Castillo President of Foundation for Recreation in Honduras / Director of Fair Juniana and Griscela Ebanks Honduran based in Cayman Islands are proud of its roots.

 

They present for the first time the cultural allegory Fair Juniana Band with all the joy, enthusiasm and the characteristic warmth of the catrachos.

 

This group began its trajectory in the year 2016 with the aim of projecting and promoting the festivities of the Juniana Fair and its Carnival Parade, being directed by the choreographer and folk dance instructor Vicente Reyes González with a vast career in the national field. He has represented the country in different events at an international level.
