The company donated 14 containers in support of cultural initiatives, as part of its corporate social responsibility program
Through its subsidiary, Terminal Marítima del Guadalquivir, Boluda Corporación Marítima’s comprehensive transport and international goods management division Boluda Lines has collaborated in the 20th annual Bienal de Flamenco, held on Sunday 30 September in the North quay of the port of Seville, by donating 14 containers to be used as a stage, to separate dressing rooms and passageways, and for storage.
Boluda Corporación Marítima collaborates in these events as part of an initiative to support culture, in line with its corporate social responsibility program. The company has managed the logistics platform in partnership with the French company CMA-CGM since 1 January 2017.
Against a backdrop of cranes, containers and ships, the flamenco pianist Dorantes brought the Bienial to a magnificent close with ‘La Roda del Viento’, a performance inspired by the first round-the-world voyage of Magellan and Elcano. With this event Port of Seville began the anniversary celebrations of the heroic quest that set sail from this enclave on 10 August 1519.
Part of the Bienial festival, the premiere of ‘La Roda del Viento’ was commissioned to the pianist by the city of Seville to commemorate a major landmark in global relations and communications which led to the start of globalization.
For this composition the Lebrija artist turned his flamenco soul towards the sea as inspiration for the voyages made on this first circumnavigation of the world. On this occasion he collaborated with the Bética Orchestra of Seville, under the direction of the British violinist and composer Michael Thomas, and a Flamenco Choir created especially for the show with outstanding students from the Cristina Heeren Foundation: Ana Lorenzo, Ana Gómez, Tomás García, Marcos Martínez, Sebastián Vilches and Antonio Mena, Manuel de la Tomasa, Francisco Blanco (Calerito), Cristina Regajo and Marta García (La Niña). Dorantes was also accompanied by the voices and palmas (handclapping) of Pedrito Peña y Los Mellis and percussion from Antonio Moreno and Javi Ruibal.
