Igor Stravinksy in Madrid - in the middle of the 1910's

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 62:

At a fixed hour every day I heard from my room the distant sound of a banda playing a passadoble, and military exercises always apparently ended with that sort of music. All the little characteristics of the Spaniards’ daily life pleased me immensely, and I experienced and savoured them with great gusto.
