You are probably asking what is a Murga? Well, its a term which you normally hear around the carnival season and relates to a group of people a musical theater. Most commonly here in Lanzarote it takes the form of a choir of men or women. The songs they sing are popular tunes but the words are changed. During carnival the words are politically motivated and are performed in front of judges from the local council or government. The most entertaining things about the performance are the gestures, costumes and dance routines. There is also a little Kazoo playing in between.
This Saturday, there will be a charity night in Arrecife of different Murgas from around the island in Recinto Ferial in Arrecife. Rntrance is 5.00€ and it starts at 21.00hrs
