Madrid's got talent!

But, if you want to sing, Hermano, ¿puedes darme un céntimo?, get in line for the audition;
The city of Madrid has begun auditioning street musicians, who must now carry a license to be able to perform.
Keep in mind that this is the country that tried to imprison a girl for playing her piano lessons too loudly for here neighbors.
The auditions are the result of an October decision by Madrid officials to declare the city center an Area of Special Acoustic Protection. The new status comes with a raft of rules regarding the decibels that are allowed at various times of the day. One of the regulations states that street performers can only play from 10am to 10pm, with a pause in the middle for siesta time. 
And also a country that is pursuing Francisco Franco beyond the grave for being a dictator.
