There are three main elements to the carnaval here in Lanzarote:

Murgas Los Simplones Murgas

A Murga is a group of people who perform a musical play, they will have been practising for months prior to the carnaval and have distinctive colourful costumes and makeup. The groups perform over three nights in the first week until the final where the winning Murga is elected.

Batucada Batucada

The batucada bands give the sound to carnaval, they use a selection of drums, tamborines, bells and whistles to create a rhythm which is fast and repetitive. The groups practise all year round and can be found at events throughout the island.

Comparsas Comparsas

Comparsas originated from Brazil and are the dancers that perform the group salsa routines during the carnaval parade. These are the brave dancing girls and boys in revealing costumes wearing headdresses and smiles.

The programme of events are listed here or you can download a copy of the carnaval programme which is attached below.  read more »
