Carnaval de Uruguay

Uruguay Carnival (Montevideo) – in late January and February, the capital holds its annual celebration of carnival festivities (unlike other countries, this carnival last 40 days). Parades of women dressed in colorful costumes dance to the sound of pulsating drumbeats; while the Murgas (a street theater group) stage productions of political satire. During parades often held during that time, Comparsas (groups of candombe drum-beating performers) conduct “llamadas” (or “calls”), often held at Avenida 18 de Julio – where such groups compete against one another for prizes. In this country, Carnival pays homage to the country’s once-sizable African (former slave) population, despite present-day Uruguay’s heavily European population.
