Enjoying the live samba at Pedra do Sal from the stairs.

J’ai eu la chance de passer mon premier vendredi soir à Rio dans un lieu unique, Pedra do Sal, considérée comme le berceau de la samba carioca. Un espace à ciel ouvert, plein de charme et dont les murs un peu délabrés et couverts de peintures murales vous rappelle que Rio, c’est bien plus qu’Ipanema ou Copacabana. Un espace qui vous acceuille sur de la musique samba jouée live par un groupe assis autour d’une table au milieu de la place comme s’ils étaient à la maison tandis que tous les locaux dansent autour d’eux, un verre de bière – o de caipirinha dans mon cas – à la main.

Because Fridays are for samba, right?

Once the center of the most important quilombo village, now of the most iconic places in the city to listen to samba after an exhausting workweek. Pedra do Sal sparks a lively atmosphere for those looking for fun on a Friday night. We took our students for a night of live samba at Pedra do Sal. In this RioLIVE! Pedra do Sal activity, we took our students to experience some real carioca time! We had drinks (together with a lot of fun of course) and enjoyed a whole night of samba. Fridays are for samba and next time you can come along! Here we respect samba (Pedra do Sal slogan).

Rodas de samba bring everybody together.
