Raimundo Lanas
The most characteristic folk music of Navarre is the jota. This ancestral form of popular expression has not disappeared with the passing of the years. The exponent par excellence of the jota of Navarre was Raimundo Lanas, also known as the 'Nightingale'. Born in Murillo el Fruto on 23 January 1908, he died at the early age of 38. His singing made him famous and his townspeople dress up in red and white to pay tribute to him every year in this music competition. The best voices raise their songs to the sky from the warehouse of the town's cooperative to compete for the prized trophy.

    Navarra de mi fe,
    Navarra de mi amor,
    mientras tenga garganta,
    canta que canta
    tu Ruiseñor (Jota Ausente de Navarra).

(Navarre of my faith,
Navarre of my love,
As long as I have a throat
Your Nightingale will sing)
