On the night of April 30 in Seville, it will be different. With permission from the pandemic, the city will shine again when the cover of the April fair lights up and start a big week that was missing.
In previous years, singers of Híspalis entertained the moment with their live Sevillians. But this time, it will not be paschal, its founder, who revolutionized gender to take it to the top in the whole world.
Pascual González Moreno was born in 1950 in the neighborhood of La Calzada, in Seville, in the city "capital of the world", as he called her.
He was born in a humble family, in a house of neighbors, a corral of the road. Like many other families of the time, on the so-called Sevillian diaspora, they moved to the neighborhood of San Pablo's polygon.
He studied as a child at the School of Religious of the Sagrada Familia and later in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, until later studying several Magisterium courses.
Although his mother was deeply sevillian, he went deeply beic. Friends remember those endearing scenes when Pascual's mother sat on her chair from her to fight with her son on football themes, each defending her colors.
So beic that even composed the anthem of his team, premiered on June 23, 1985 at the Benito Villamarín stadium.
Although he taught math classes, Pascual, since childhood, were lyrics and art, and always had an incessant interest in learning. To learn from everything and from all the places of the world.
He was part of the tuna of Magisterio, with whom he traveled to countries such as Switzerland and Denmark for 'Dar patches', which is how the tuns call bolus for restaurants and other similar spaces. On the return of him, with about 26 years of age, he formed singers of Híspalis with Juani (Juan Luis Calceteiro), Falín (Rafael Ojeda, father of Falete) and José Antonio Rúa 'El Canijo', the last two, already deceased . They were all from the polygon of Saint Paul; They met from the streets of the neighborhood. Especially Juani; They were the best friends, almost much more than brothers.
Over time, Pascual moved to the town of Spartinas and later to Sanlúcar La Mayor, where a house was bought in which a recording studio was made. But without forgetting your neighborhood of the road where, since 2017, there is a street that bears the name of it.
He was also a great brother, leaving many years of Nazarene in the Brotherhoods of San Benito and in silence. And a great believer. After overcoming the cancer of larynx that took him to the operating room in 16 occasions, he traveled to the Holy Land, from which he emerged by the last show of him, Christ, Passion and Hope, canceled earlier this month of February.
Pascual revolutionized the Sevillanas and the way of doing show. He was a creator that every day got up with the illusion of a child, to do something new. As when he occurred to him to put twenty couples to dance sevillanas in front of the town hall and then appeared horses. Or put five music bands at the Hotel Triana. An atrocity. But he had faith in what he did, he ended up infecting everyone and the show went ahead. They were 'Las Pascaladas', as the friends of him defined.
Golden Medal of the city of Seville, Pascual González mixed Sevillanas with synthesizers, electric guitars, batteries; He changed the arrangements; They recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with Russian choirs and with a Moroccan orchestra; He composed themes for Paloma San Basilio or the Dynamic Duo and Holy Week Marches ... He just lacked to give the early week of Seville.
What moved to Pascual was not the economic reasons. He created because he had the vital need to create. He produced, composed, wrote books ...
High and eared, always with his glasses, his mustache and his long hair collected in a queue, received samples from affection from where he passed. He congratulated the friends of him for Christmas, and he was always dumping with beneficial causes, with numerous brotherhoods, without ever looking at the money when he helps someone who needed it.
His economic situation was not bad, either that many could imagine as a result of such successes. Because Paschal gave a lot of people a lot. He had to live, without stress, as always, with the friends of him as always, generous, simple, plain and normal.
As his friend says the composer Manuel Marvizon, "he was a real gentleman, a Sevillano de Pro and a loyal person above all, with a heart as big as the Cathedral of Seville."Date Of Update: 07 February 2022, 20:59
