Just the Mona

It's an idol, that's clear, but it's an idol that doesn't climb on the pedestal, an idol that never forgot where it came from. And that's why we love him so much.

Music

They say that you have to be  Cordoba to understand what the   quartet  means and, of course, you have to be also to understand what the phenomenon of  the Mona Jiménez means. . It's an  idol , that's clear, but it's an idol that doesn't climb on the pedestal, an idol that never forgot where it came from. And that's why they love him so much.

 The Mona is 69 years old and 53 years old. At that time, he broke records of all kinds: he has 89 albums released, more than 4 million sold and 10,000 dances. For more than 15 years he played on Fridays at the  Monumental Sargento Cabral , a club located in the San Vicente neighborhood of the city of Cordoba known as “  the Cathedral of the quartet ”.

 The Mona never misses her date, and  dancing  becomes a ritual. People who are in the public go to worship their idol; they feel represented by him: he is one of them and could go further than anyone else. Despite that,  the Mona Jimenez helps whenever she can, she doesn't miss her commitments and is able to open the door to a fan whose biggest dream is to meet him.

 The Mona found success, but that didn't get him out of his place; he never lost humility. He knows who he is, where he comes from and who he owes. That's why the people of  Cordoba love him that way. That's why there probably won't be another like him.
