Final of the Murgas Contest

From the final of the Murgas in 2020

The Final of the Murga Contest, should have taken place today, Friday 29 January 2021, but of course, because of the COVID pandemic, carnival will not be taking place. This year virtual carnival events take place between 17 February and 7 March, culminating in a television gala, ‘Santa Cruz, Corazón del Carnaval’ (Santa Cruz, Heart of Carnival). 

Instead, we bring you coverage of this event from last year. This is one in a series of posts that aim to keep the spirit of carnival alive. Or keep the flame burning, so the torch can be passed to the next carnival, whenever we can get back to gathering normally.
