Notes From composer Raúl Díaz Palomar in Spanish and English:

(EN) A selection of the music that I made for “Maqbara” documentary, directed by José Ramón Rebollada.

“Maqbara” is a documentary film which aims to explain the historical and cultural importance of the Moorish community in Avila, and also relate the political intricacies that ruined the place, a very unknown and surprising story. “Maqbara” has the aim to relate with precision and accuracy that process, which had important social and cultural impact on the city.

Mudejars were Muslims who lived and integrated into the Christian kingdoms until the Catholic Kings enacted the pragmatics of expulsion or forced conversion to Christianity in 1502.

The most important mudejars community in the Kingdom of Castile was from Ávila, both quantitatively and qualitatively. For 200 years they were an active and peaceful community that left cultural footprints in the city. The most important material testimony that remained was their “maqbara”, the Muslim cemetery was discovered archaeologically in 1999. It is so far the most important Muslim medieval necropolis discovered in Spain, 3,171 corpses were exhumed in total.

The discovery of the archaeological site occurred following the project to urbanize the area where it was located. After the finding, there was a controversy centered on whether or not retain the maqbara and create a cultural park to remind the presence and importance of the Avila Mudejar community.

This position was held by multiple specialists, entities and Spanish and foreign institutions, including the universities of Valladolid, Salamanca, Madrid and Oxford, or the Ministry of Culture of France. Despite these pronouncements both the municipal government of Avila and the regional executive from Castilla y León chose to fully excavate the site, document and destroy it, in order to build the planned urbanization.

(ES) Esta es una selección de música que hice para el documental “Maqbara”, dirigido por José Ramón Rebollada.

“maqbara” es un documental con el que se pretende explicar la importancia histórica y cultural de la comunidad mudéjar en Ávila, y también relatar los entresijos políticos que dieron al traste con el yacimiento, una historia muy desconocida y sorprendente. “maqbara” tiene la pretensión de relatar con precisión y veracidad ese proceso que tuvo importantes repercusiones sociales y culturales en la ciudad.

Los mudéjares fueron los islámicos que vivieron integrados en los reinos cristianos hasta que los Reyes Católicos promulgaron la pragmática de su expulsión, o conversión forzosa al cristianismo, en 1502.

La comunidad más importante de mudéjares en el reino de Castilla fue la de Ávila, tanto cuantitativa como cualitativamente. Durante 200 años fueron una comunidad activa y pacífica que fue dejando sus huellas culturales en la ciudad. El testimonio material más importante que hubo fue su “maqbara”, el cementerio musulmán que fue descubierto arqueológicamente en 1999. Es hasta ahora la necrópolis medieval musulmana más importante de las descubiertas en España, se exhumaron en total 3.171 cadáveres.

El descubrimiento del yacimiento arqueológico se produjo a raíz del proyecto de urbanizar la zona en la que se encontraba. Tras la constatación del hallazgo se produjo una polémica centrada en la necesidad o no de conservar la maqbara y crear un parque cultural que recordase la presencia e importancia de la comunidad mudéjar abulense.

Ésta fue la postura defendida por múltiples especialistas, entidades e instituciones españolas y extranjeras, entre ellas las universidades de Valladolid, Salamanca, Complutense de Madrid y Oxford, o el ministerio de cultura de Francia. A pesar de esos pronunciamientos tanto el gobierno municipal de Ávila como el de la Junta de Castilla y León optaron por excavar íntegramente el yacimiento, documentarlo y destruirlo para poder materializar la urbanización prevista.
