A comparsa (conga de comparsa) is the band which plays a conga during a Latin American Carnival celebration. It consists of a large group of dancers dancing and traveling on the streets, followed by a Carrosa (carriage) where the musicians play. The Comparsa is a development of African processions where groups of devotees followed a given saint or deity during a particular religious celebration.Latin America (Spanish: Am rica Latina or Latinoam rica; Portuguese: Am rica Latina; French: Am rique latine) is a region of the Americas where Romance languages (i.e., those derived from Latin) - particularly Spanish and Portuguese, and variably French - are primarily spoken.
