Chayanne - "El Torero"
¿Qué sabes de la tauromaquía?
¿O de los toros y los toreros?
El traje de
¿sol o sombra?
¿A dónde preferirías sentarte?
Desde las epocas antiguas, a los seres humanos, les fascinaban los toros.
El torero, o matador, tambien
tiene que ser fuerte,
agresivo, y valiente.
El imagen del toro y del torero es una parte profunda de la vida y la mente española tanto en el arte y la música que en la historia y los días festivos.
¿Para quién es más peligroso? ¿toro o torero?
"It is the worst attack on culture since our transition to democracy," said the Catalan poet Pere Gimferrer.
"It sickens me to know that people are still paying money to see an animal suffering in such a horrific way," Gervais said before the vote.
In Spain, critics pointed to dark, if barely-disguised, political motives. Bullfight fans claimed many Catalan nationalist deputies had voted out of spite, because the fighting bull is an emblem of Spain where it is known as the "national fiesta" rather than of Catalonia.

The local El Periódico newspaper reported that several nationalist deputies had decided to back the ban only after Spain's constitutional court struck down parts of the region's 2006 autonomy charter earlier this month. At least 430,000 people, or 6% of all Catalans, protested on 10 July in Barcelona against the court's decision ,which declared Catalonia was not legally a nation.

Just as Britain's foxhunting ban mixed animal rights with class politics, so the bullfight ban brought together animal welfare and Catalan identity politics, local commentators agreed. "Some of our people will back the ban on the basis that if they are going to sink our charter, we will sink their bulls," a regional deputy from the Convergence and Union nationalist coalition told El Periódico.
Bullfight campaigners said the ban would cost €300m in lost revenues, and argue that the fight was an art form, rather than a cruel bloodsport.

Bullfighting can be
found as far back as
ancient Crete.
Paintings date bullfighting from 2000 B.C..
The Plaza de Toros in Ronda, Spain
is said to be the oldest in Spain.
While the fight began as an activity of the nobility and of soldiers practicing for war, by the early 1700's the nobility had grown tired of it and bullfighting became a ritual of the people.
The objective of the bullfight is, in fact, the opposite: to avoid a brutal confrontation by using the human attributes of intelligence, grace, and elegance. In a sport, the important thing is to win; the sport fan is satisfied with the accumulation of points, hits, and records. In bullfighting, there is no scorekeeping. Satisfaction is implicit in the expected triumph of human cunning over brute force; a bullfight fan screams olé not because the matador has won, but because of the manner, the form, the grace, the wit, the dexterity of the torero
In an afternoon at the Plaza de Toros, three matadors and six bulls will fight. First, the torero will greet the bull with a few initial passes called 'verónicas'. He'll use a large pink and yellow cape for these.
Next, the picadores
lance the bull three times.
Then, the banderilleros attach
the banderillas.
A trumpet sounds to signal the faena or final phase of the bullfight.
The cloth of the muleta is draped over the estoque and here the matador
shows his skill in the passes that he makes.
There are other countries which practice bullfighting, and some do not kill the bull.
No-kill bullfighting practices:
Spanish-style bullfighting:
Recortes is a style of bullfighting practised in Navarra, La Rioja, and North of Castille.
Southern France
Tamil Nadu or Indian style Jallikattu
The "classic" style of bullfight, in which the bull is killed, is the form practised in Spain and many Latin American countries. In general, the matador is cheered for in Spain, and the bull is cheered for in Latin America.
Mexico, Peru, Colombia,
Venezuela, and Ecuador.
Bogotá, Colombia
The Corrida is not pulling in the crowds in México.
