Comparsa Brasileiros 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.

Formed in 1970, Los Brasileiros, directed by Esteban Reyes, has their headquarters in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife neighborhood of La Salud.
