Reggae Can Festival, Garachico, 13th August


Fiestas in Tenerife are most usually associated with the traditional Canarian folk music of the parandas (wandering minstels, more or less) or the Latin carnaval rhythms of Salsa, but at almost all, somewhere, there's also likely to be a sound system, or at the very least a market stall selling the familiarly coloured green, gold and red, Bob Marley merchandise; sometimes I get the impression that Bob has been adopted as an honorary Canarian son. Reggae had found a real home-from-home in the Canaries and a multitude of avid fans.

Neighbours in the village I used to live in used to ask me to translate the lyrics of Bob Marley songs and I had to explain that whilst my Spanish might have up to it, my patois wasn't quite! So if you also like reggae music, then there's a real treat in store for you on the evening of Thursday, 13th August, 2015 from 8pm in the Plaza de la Ermita de San Roque in Garachico, with the first edition of the Reggae Can Festival, with artists including Ruts & La Isla Music, Dactah Chando, Stereoman, Omar Xerach, Fernikhan, DJ Magek Selekta and the wonderfully named MC Dadda Wanche.

The Reggae Can Festival was posponed due to the inclement weather, is now has a new date and is due to take place on Friday, 21st August. Same location, the Plaza de la Ermita de San Roque in Garachico, from 8pm.

For once, I think this is something really likely to live up to the promotional blurb: "The sound of the drums make this summer's event an attraction without equal, surrounded by the infectious sounds of reggae music." Oh and ENTRANCE IS FREE!
