Comparsa Río Orinoco 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 1988, Comparsa Río Orinoco have their home in the district of La Higuerita in San Cristóbal de La Laguna.
