Torrevieja Habaneras Song Competition

The week long International Habaneras Competition in Torrevieja starts on Sunday 22nd July and continues until Saturday 28th July 2018. It is one of the most popular cultural events within Torrevieja. The first competition was held in 1955 and there has been one every year since then. The Habanera is a specific type of music that originated from Cuba in the 19th century. It was the first written music to be rhythmically based on an African motif, and the first dance music from Cuba to be exported all over the world.

Every evening there is a performance on the Eras de la Sal, the promenade just to the south of the Club Natico, leading off the Paseo Vista Alegre where the day and night market is located. All performances start at 23:00, for more information take a look at the official website. The programme is:
