A BISHOP in Salamanca has criticised officials who use Andalucian accents during processions in Semana Santa, accusing them of ruining their ‘style and professionalism.’
In a letter to the high ranking officials within the so-called guilds, the Bishop, Carlos Lopez, expresses his dismay at their behaviour.
“The foremen use a feigned Andalucian accent during these processions only, the rest of the year they speak normally,” he said.
He said the use of the accent made no sense in the region and “sounds wrong” to people in Salamanca.
Lopez’s complaints are believed to stem from an increase in phrases typically used during Semana Santa processions in Sevilla.
