Pep Gimeno “Botifarra” grew up in Vall d'Albaida listening to the songs of his grandparents, in particular those of uela Otilia de Benicàssim, and, at a very young age, he became interested in oral traditions. With the group Al Tall as his reference, in a context in which use of the Valencian language and other liberties were both being regained, Botifarra began to build an artistic career based on the revival of traditional local music. In recognition of his efforts, he was awarded the Medal for Cultural Merit by the Valencia Regional Government and Medal of Honour by the Valencia Ministry for Culture.
