Loro Parque welcomed Rafael Flores “El Morocho” and La Gran Orquesta, famous for their performances during the carnivals of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, for the recording of a music video for a new song. The event is organized by Canariasmusic for the upcoming promotional campaign of the Canarian singer.

In the shadows of the palm trees, the famous El Morocho performed his original version of the Tarzan Boys song, surrounded by the dancers and in the company of a parrot. The shooting also took place in the spectacular surroundings of Animal Embassy, at the sea lions show stage and at the dolphin show stadium, as well as in the tree houses of Kinderlandia.
