Portuguese Organization:

Filarmonica do Artesia D.E.S.




The Artesia DES band was founded in 1972 (although the Portuguese Community of Artesia had a band from 1927-1945). We are the second oldest Portuguese band in California. The origin of the band goes back to January of 1972 when a group of men researched the possibility of forming a musical group to play for a "Danca de Espada" (typical medieval theatrical dance)organized by Anselmo Correia and others.
