"Tuba and Clouds"
5/12/2003 -- Lazaro
Candeias warms up on his tuba as he and other members of the Tulare (CA)
Portuguese Band prepare to play during a bloodless Portuguese bullfight in
Laton, California. Portuguese farmers (predominately dairy farmers) sponsor
bullfighting throughout the Central Valley of California. Under U.S. laws
the fighting must be bloodless and humane, consequently velcro-tipped spears
are used instead of real ones.
