Canarian folklore is the heritage and identity of its islanders. During the various local festivities, folklore groups dressed in traditional outfits sing and dance to isas, folias and malagueñas following the melody of the timple, a string instrument that is typical of the Canary Islands. This is a great opportunity to glimpse the Canarian’s traditions, celebrations and typical dances.
In Puerto del Carmen, the chance to enjoy some traditional music comes in summer, with the festivities of the Virgen del Carmen. Every year, Tías celebrates the Tenderete Canario de Candelaria in honour of Saint Candelaria in February; San Blas in January; and the Folklorical Festival of El Pavón in June to commemorate San Antonio.
