El Colacho


The Colacho is coming! Can you hear him? The atabalero announces his arrival while he beats the drum in a speacial rhythym. The beats are faint as first, then they grow louder as the Colacho approaches. He repeatedly starts and stops like an engine. He circles back to the Cofradia dressed in black, tapping his stick in time to the drum before setting off in a sprint again, this time hoping to make contact with his cola del caballo. Then he cirlces back around the calle again ready to charge at those who follow him.

Curious? Repulsed? The story of the Colacho will be continued.
