Next Monday, March 4, 2019, we are going to Los Indianos!

El Ingeniero Restaurant will be closed on March 4 (Indianos Day) and March 5 (staff rest day).

For Indiano we know the emigrant who left in search of a better life in the Americas and who returns after having obtained wealth and prosperity. These migratory flows were lived between the sixteenth and early twentieth centuries. Cuba was one of the main destinations. The arrival was by boat.

The festival of Los Indianos appeared for the first time in the 1920s but it was consolidated in 1966 when Los Indianos joined the Carnival program. It is in the 80’s when talcum powder joined the fiesta of the Indian, giving rise to the party as it is celebrated today. The assistant should know that the white and cream tones of the beige range are the colors that these garments must have. The festival of Los Indianos has a strong and indissoluble Cuban component, this is so because Cuba was one of the main centers of emigration of many palmeros. The character of La Negra Tomasa was designed by the neighbor of the capital Víctor Lorenzo Díaz, better known as Sosó.

Every Monday of Carnival thousands of Indians await the arrival of the Negra Tomasa in the Plaza de España that during that day is renamed Plaza de La Habana. After this reception, the Los Indianos Carnival officially begins.

Now that you know what this popular celebration means in La Isla de la Palma, you will understand that we are going to join the party and enjoy the typical clothes, the music, the talcum powder, the black tomasa …

We are waiting for you again in our restaurant starting on Wednesday, March 6.
