Fun at Salgueiro
Yuki Takabatake, Japan
To have fun at Salgueiro is one of the best things to do in Rio de Janeiro. Usually tourist not visit this fantastic place where you can feel the Rio’s Carnival spirit. In Quadra do Salgueiro we are able to see the characteristic things and characters that we found in Carnival, but just next to us!
We took our Portuguese language students there to enjoy part of the election of the song (samba-enredo) that Escola de Samba Salgueiro will use for Carnival 2015. Different groups of singers of the Escola de Samba compete between theme to be chosen the official song of their Samba School, what is a great honour as the song will be a greatest hit in Rio and Brazil.
This RioLIVE! Activity had Portuguese language students from Japan, France, Germany, Venezuela and Holland. We started our visit with a fresh caipirinha together with some Brazilian music. After that the passistas started dancing just in front of us!
After the first passistas show, we danced like crazies to the rhythm of the Bateria Furiosa, the famous bateria of Salgueiro. Bateria is the group of drummers that every Samba School have.
Portuguese, caipirinhas and fun at Salgueiro. Just see it on the pictures below!
