La primera fiesta traída por los españoles fue la Pascua de Pentecostés o Llegada del Espíritu Santo, celebrada por cada barrio bajo el símbolo de Cruces. Esta fiesta se celebra con la bajada de las Cruces y las corridas de toros en cada barrio con el acompañamiento de Wagra Pukus y el canto de los Jarawis y los famosos pututeros, la duración de la fiesta es de una semana.

Explanation:
La traducción está bien, pero yo insisto en que hay que dejar la palabra "pututeros" y poner entre paréntesis nada más la traducción. Además, la referencia de la respuesta seleccionada es de Hawaii, en circunstancias que los pututeros son de la sierra andina de Perú.
