When New Orleans meets Cuba: An International Music Festival in Tenerife

We would like to invite you to Tenerife – the island of eternal spring! Join us for a unique experience of music, body and soul!

Come with us and participate in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Music and Rhythm Carnival. This is the second music festival we produce in Tenerife. The 2020 season will have us exploring the music of New Orleans with a bit of Latin spice.

At the southern coast of Tenerife, among beautiful gardens and palm and coconut trees, lies a magical hotel – our home for this trip and the central venue of our music events.

We offer you the perfect vacation in paradise. A wonderful mix of music, good food and great fun.

You can start each day with the “Pilates Queen” of Israel – Dalia Mantver. Each morning, we’ll stretch, refresh and take a deep breath in the open air of this magical island.

After a 5-star breakfast, you can choose from a selection of lectures and excursions. You’ll attend the world’s second largest carnival in Santa Cruz City, and enjoy a plethora of jazz concerts, all in a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere.

We’ve assembled the best international artists, that will perform New Orleans music and passionate Latin music – just for you!
