Urdiain – Momoxarros


Recorded during the evening of Tuesday Carnival in the village of Urdiain. The momoxarros, main characters of the celebration, run up and down street, scaring unexpectedly and occasionally beating whoever they find on the streets. Until recently, this ritual to scare was celebrated in a very intense way- For one day, the momoxarros could get in inside the houses to scare all neighbors.
