Carnaval Porteño 2015 - Buenos Aires Carnival


Every weekend from Saturday January 31st until Saturday February 28th, 2015, and on Carnaval Holidays, Monday February 16th and Tuesday February 17th, the “Carnaval Porteño 2015” (Buenos Aires Carnival) will take place at different neighborhoods, with the participation of 17 thousand artists, 112 "murgas" (carnival bands), and over one thousand drums and percussion instruments.

Murgas and carnival are the artistic expressions of the marginal neighborhoods, their songs and urban folk customs. The lyrics of these songs are called "criticas", and combine the social denunciation with humor and dancing. What identifies the "murga porteña" from others are their costumes (frock coat, gloves, top hat, and stick), the drums with cymbals, and the various traditional rhythms used to differentiate every neighborhood.

The parades will be held on the following times:
Saturdays, January 31 and February 7, 14, 21, 28: 7 PM to 2 AM.
Sundays, February 1, 8, 15, 22: 7 PM to 12 AM
