Comparsa Tropicana 2019

Components of Comparsa Tropicana in the Carnival Main Parade 5 March 2019

One of my favourite components of carnival, comparsas in Santa Cruz de Tenerife are said to be similar to the Brazillian Carnival Blocks, but actually appear to have more in common with the dancing, marching and drumming Samba Schools that have a strong community basis and are traditionally associated with a particular neighborhood.

Founded in 1994, in Candelaria, Comparsa Tropicana are this year celebrating their 25th Anniversary. They made their first appearance on stage, in Candelaria, in 1995 and the following year participated in Santa Cruz Carnival.
