A Breif History of the Santa Cruz Carnival Music

Tenerife’s carnival dates back hundreds of years to the island’s earliest European settlement in the late 15th century.  The Carnival of Santa Cruz is the second most popular of its kind in the world after the Rio de Janeiro carnival in Brazil.

The Spanish conquest in 1494 brought with it many things from South America, like animals, produce, traditions and of course, the carnival! Written accounts of this early carnival date back to visitors from the 18th century who reported seeing singers, dancers in the streets, musicians playing conga music from Cuba.

Alongside the Cuban music was murga, a type of musical theatre from Uruguay, and Rondall, a medieval Spanish acoustic music, also popular in Mexico. These connections to South America have remained strong and visitors can still see these exotic types of music performed at the carnival today.

The famous Los Realejos fireworks 3 May

The famous Los Realejos fireworks 3 May

Although not a Tenerife-wide public holiday, one part of Los Realejos’ Cruces & Fuegos fiesta on Friday, 3 May, draws people from around the island and even further afield. The fiesta itself is part of the Fiestas de la Cruz held throughout Tenerife (see HERE), but in Los Realejos it lasts just over a month from the end of April to the beginning of June, and the fireworks are what people come from far and wide to see. They have been granted National Tourist Interest status and are simply spectacular, long recognized as the best by far in Tenerife, and now officially one of the best in the whole of Spain.

The fireworks are staged as a competition between two streets – Calle El Medio Arriba and Calle El Sol – in Los Realejos for the best display, a tradition that started in 1770. The fireworks manufacturers Hermanos Toste themselves date back to 1788 and have a factory in Los Realejos, the only one in the Canaries. The displays are always broadcast live widely on social media (especially Los Realejos Ayuntamiento) from around 9.30pm, with the whole fireworks display lasting for around three hours. The following short video of 2011′s displays will hopefully give some idea of what to expect.
