Tunas, also known as estudiantinas, are groups of students dressed in 17th century costumes who play guitars, lutes and tambourines and who used to go serenading through the streets. More recently, they have been known for making impromptu appearances at weddings and parties singing traditional Spanish songs, often of a bawdy nature, in exchange for drinks or some money.
