Amparito Roca

Jaime Texidor Dalmau (1884-1957) was an important Spanish composer of paso dobles, the bullfighting-inspired march style most closely associated with Spain. He was also the director of the municipal band of Barakaldo for almost 30 years. Amparito Roca (1925) is his most famous composition. (Source: Andy Pease)
