Conga Irreversible is a performance conceived, organized and directed by Los Carpinteros, which inverts a traditional comparsa -the conga band and dancers that traditionally perform at Latin American carnival celebrations- through reversing all of the typical elements of the performance. In other words, the music, lyrics and dancers movements are performed backwards in a live event on Havana's Paseo del Prado.
