Buenavista Song Contest

The northern Tenerife town of Buenavista del Norte is, once more, in the midst of it’s main annual fiestas, the Fiestas de los Remedios. The highlight of tonight’s entertainments, from 9.30 pm in the square alongside the church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, is the Festival de la Canción (Song Contest). This video (above) from last year’s edition – persevere until the second singer (3.40) – will give you an idea of the high quality of the entrants. This is followed by a Gran Baile (dance) with the Orquesta Malibú Band in the Plaza de Los Remedios.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
