Murcian music is most notably represented by the religious Auroras songs, which are derived from La Mancha and Andalusian folk music. They include a cappella chants, sometimes accompanied by church bells. They are often performed in small paths in orchards at night.
Cuadrillas are festive songs traditionally sung by reduced collectives with jobs like harvesters ("segaores" [[Sic| [sic]]]) or builders ("albañiles"), but now they are performed at celebrations and holidays, especially on Christmas by reduced bands with occasional dancing. The Fandango Murciano is a well-known variation of the Andalusian fandango characterized by long extensions of the voice. José Verdú's Cantos populares de Murcia is a well-known collection of Murcian songs.
