Spain is different (Flamenco way of protest)

26 Jun

From childhood I’ve grown with the statement: ‘Spain is different’.

Throughout my life I’ve interpreted it in several ways. Most of the times in the wrong way, but raising a half-smile of proud resignation. The same way that a mother looks at his most friendly but helpless son.

An unemployment rate of almost 25%. Until 100.000 million financial rescue. But full terraces on the streets and with different and very ironic ways of accepting the current situation. Check out this funny example:

This video has been making the rounds on Twitter and Facebook. It is a flamenco flash mob at a Spanish bank, and they sing a Bulería with the title: “Bankia, lungs and gills”.

Why am I never there when these things happen?.
