This January 29 begins the journey of the exhibition ‘Buches and Diabletes’, curated by the musician and disseminator Benito Cabrera. The show is a tribute to the traditional Carnival of Lanzarote and the Canary Islands.

The exhibition will remain open until the end of April in the exhibition space of Casa Amarilla (C / León y Castillo, number 6, of Arrecife). In it there is a tour of many of the manifestations of rural, historical and heritage Carnival that were held, and are still performed, on the islands.

Specifically, Lanzarote preserves two ancestral traditions linked to the Carnival cycle, which are an example of this type of expression: the Diabletes de Teguise and the Buches de Arrecife. Both events are the main elements of this exhibition organized and produced by the Cabildo de Lanzarote, through the Data Center and Casa Amarilla.

On the traditions of the Carnival of Lanzarote, exclusive images made by the photographers Nico Melián and Joaquín Vera have been produced and created. In addition, the exhibition includes audiovisual pieces and a short documentary whose author is the video creator David GP. But, in addition, the exhibition ‘Buches y Diabletes’ exhibits carnival expressions and customs from other parts of the world, many of which bear symbolic parallels with our ancient carnivals. All this with a very careful exhibition aesthetic approach that has run by the young designer Carmen Corujo Lanzarote.

The exhibition is aimed at all types of public, both residents and national and foreign visitors, hence the texts are also translated into English. Another of the main objectives of the exhibition is to make this kind of cultural traditions and manifestations reach schoolchildren, for this purpose a didactic guide has been prepared for the students in order to complete the visit pedagogically.
