Brief history

Piano teacher Rosita Delgado de Pazos, member of the Committee Todo Por Pinar del Río, was the creator of its lyrics and music. At the request of her companions, she composes the  Pinar del Río Anthem; on the night of July 18, 1942, she writes the lyrics, a brief poem of minor art (most of the verses are pentasyllabic), for which she composes the music two days later, on July 20, thus giving rise to La Marcha del Comité, which her own students and companions of the Comité de Barrio.

The March of the Committee, is not known as Himno Pinar del Río, until 1944; because it was known as Marcha "Todo Por Pinar del Río", as it was divulged, the first time in writing, in the Extraordinary Bulletin that the Committee launched, so that the printed letter, picks it up for the first time since 1942, and it was sung, in an official way, for the first time, on Sunday December 27, 1942 in the Teatro Aída.

However, it was not until 1948 that it was recognized by the then President of the Todo Por Pinar del Río Committee, and Director of its Magazine, Efraín Martínez Andreu, as a Pinareño Hymn; this is how it appeared in the Pinar del Río Magazine. A year later, the Council of Mayors presided by Provincial Governor Cirilo M Bugallo, in its meeting on March 30, 1949, agreed to declare Rosa Delgado de Pazos "Eminent Daughter of the Province" and to declare her anthem as "Official Anthem of Pinar del Río".

In 1985, the Provincial Assembly of the Popular  Power, in its Agreement #93, directed that a study be made on the historical antecedents of Pinar del Río Anthem; and on May 31, 1986 it was announced the approval of a Regulation in whose first article states: "To declare as Official Anthem of Pinar del Río, the anthem composed by the companion Rosita Delgado Carballo".

Unfortunately, there are inaccuracies in the text, which originated in 1944, but still remain. However, its author always wanted to maintain its structure, in verses of minor art, and not sing "triumphant" where she wrote "triumphal"):

This is the lyrics of the anthem as it was first published in the Extraordinary Bulletin:

MARCH ''ALL BY PINAR DEL RÍO''.

(Lyrics and Music by the composer Rosita Delgado de Pazos).

Pinar del Río

fertile region

where Natura

poured its jewels

with splendor.

Cradle of the wise

and patriots,

tested

to self-sacrifice.

Pinareño, courage,

of the arduous struggle

harvested by fruit

the Victory,

the conscience of a people

it's gotten big,

and will ascend triumphantly

to glory.

Pinar del Río

forgotten land,

Cinderella

wretched

it can't be,

because their children

in heroic struggle

they'll make its beautiful

it's a duty...

Pinareño, courage

of the arduous struggle

harvested by fruit

Pinareño, courage,

of the arduous struggle

harvested by fruit

the Victory,

the conscience of a people

it's gotten big,

and will ascend triumphantly

to glory.

Pinar del Río

forgotten land,

Cinderella

wretched

it can't be,

because their children

in heroic struggle

they'll make its beautiful

it's a duty...

Pinareño, courage

of the arduous struggle

harvested by fruit

the Victory,

the conscience of a people

It's gotten big.

and will ascend triumphantly

to glory...

Pinar del Río...

Pinar del Río...

Pinar del Río...
