Exhibition ‘Buches and Diabletes’, a tribute to the traditional Carnival of Lanzarote

This January 29 begins the journey of the exhibition ‘Buches and Diabletes’, curated by the musician and disseminator Benito Cabrera. The show is a tribute to the traditional Carnival of Lanzarote and the Canary Islands.

The exhibition will remain open until the end of April in the exhibition space of Casa Amarilla (C / León y Castillo, number 6, of Arrecife). In it there is a tour of many of the manifestations of rural, historical and heritage Carnival that were held, and are still performed, on the islands.

Specifically, Lanzarote preserves two ancestral traditions linked to the Carnival cycle, which are an example of this type of expression: the Diabletes de Teguise and the Buches de Arrecife. 

But, in addition, the exhibition ‘Buches y Diabletes’ exhibits carnival expressions and customs from other parts of the world, many of which bear symbolic parallels with our ancient carnivals.
