Every summer, several singing contests of classic carnival festivities are organized by associations and amateur clubs in the city of Cadiz, Spain.

These competitions are conducted in order for Cadiz residents to listen and participate in performances common from the 1950´s to 1970´s that are now less common, such as pasodobles. These events are also in the effort to pass the time before the next official carnival week, which takes place every year in February.

I accompanied a participating band during the summer of 2013 and photographed some of these festivities.
