Our ancestors realized that, in the sky as on Earth, the bear disappeared in the dark night of winter to return in spring time. Then the young people of the town captured it to dance with him in the main square. Some signs say that this custom was spread all throughout Europe and in the Aquitaine-Cantabrian Palaeolithic cultural reserve and disappeared together with the bear.

The variant that we offer you can be heard from Asturias to Toulouse, in Occitania.
