First phase of the junior murgas contest in Santa Cruz de Tenerife



Whilst I've always said that the murga groups are an acquired taste (and their political satire is perhaps one of the hardest concepts to grasp if Spanish is not your first language), they are a very popular part of carnival in Tenerife, both for participation and to watch.

So popular in fact that the contests, which essentially decide the running order of the various components of the parades, for the murga groups are split into six heats - three junior and three adult - plus the final. This year, the first of those, the 1st phase of the junior murga contests takes place today, Thursday, 18th January 2018. This heat takes place from 7pm at the The Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses.

Here's a coverage of last year's equivalent event so you can see what it's about.

Most Santa Cruz carnival events are televised via RTVE or RTVC, locally, nationally and internationally or recordings may be found on the CarnavalTVC Youtube channel. 

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
