He had led the band of bugles and drums of Fused mortally wounded for years. With hardly any contracts in the capital, his performances were practically limited to accompanying the Christ of Exaltation every Holy Wednesday and opening a procession on a guiding cross. Sometimes not even that. All in all, in the last few weeks, after the summer break, it seemed that the ensemble was regaining strength and holding open days and even announcing the addition of new marches of their own to their repertoire. Nevertheless, the board of directors of the musical formation, meeting this Monday, has made the decision to dissolve the band definitivelyand he has made it known through a statement that he has published on his official communication channels.
“We inform of the difficult decision to definitively cease our musical activity”, indicates the note in which, in addition, the reasons for this interruption are explained. The board of directors notes that not even the brotherhood to which the band belongs has offered “financial or devotional support”. “In turn, from the Association of Processional Music Bands of Malaga and the Malaga City Council, we have not received the support that we consider logical for any musical group in the city, in terms of grants and aid is concerned,” the statement explains.

Many other musical formations in the capital have sent messages of encouragement. And other brothers, however, reproach the lack of diligence of the board of directors to have been able to carry out the formation.
