Charangas are musical bands that go from street to street during festivals and they are formed by percussion and wind instruments.
Charangas (musical bands) are common in several festivals in the Basque Country, but we can assure you that the ones in Tolosa are special.
It is almost impossible to imagine the Carnivals of Tolosa without musical bands (which also have their own rules), but many of the more than 20 musical bands in Tolosa also offer performances in several festivals and towns.
During three-hour sessions, they liven up the atmosphere while everyone else celebrates. If you have never heard a charanga (musical band), we have got that covered for you!!
