• Criticism. Controversy for the hiring of singer C. Tangana: "You cannot hire artists whose songs reproduce a culture of rape"

The Bilbao City Council has canceled the concert that singer C. Tangana had planned to offer on Saturday, August 24 in the Europa Park in the framework of the Aste Nagusia after the political controversy and citizen protests on social networks for the lyrics " macho "of his songs.

In his place will act the Puerto Rican singer Pedro Capó , grandson of the legendary Bobby Capó, author of the well-known song Piel Canela, according to sources from the Bilbao Consistory.

The controversy over the hiring of C. Tangana by the City Council comes at a time of strong social awareness following the group rape of a young woman in a park in Bilbao on August 1.

The singer's performance was announced since July 18. In fact, many of the criticisms made to the concert place the lyrics of C. Tangana within the "culture of rape" , as they pointed out yesterday from Elkarrekin Podemos and from EH Bildu, who considered that the consulate should hire groups "that don't treat women only as sexual objects . "

But perhaps, more than political criticism has weighed in the City Council's decision the citizen protest and the signature collection campaign that opened on Change.org that accumulated more than 10,000 accessions in 24 hours calling for the cancellation of the action.
