Photo above was taken during the General Trias Town Fiesta 2011's Grand Pasayo. Banda Matanda was one of the Twelve bands who participated during the said event.
Historically known as Banda San Francisco de Malabon, Banda Matanda, General Trias' oldest band and probably the most important band in Philippine History. Banda Matanda was the first band ever to play the Philippine National Anthem or Lupang Hinirang written by Jose Palma and musical composition by Julian Felipe. The Banda Matanda played the Philippine National Anthem during the proclamation of Philippine Independence at Kawit, Cavite on June 12, 1898.
Up until now, Banda Matanda is still on its practice of playing wonderful music for Caviteños and to all Filipinos.
