Mangueira, your scenery is poetry!

12 de February de 2022

“Tem que respeitar meu tamborim” dice el lema de Estação Primera de Mangueira. Asistir a un ensayo de esta legendaria escuela de samba fue muy especial, no sΓ³lo por ser un hermoso espectΓ‘culo y una gran fiesta, sino porque tambiΓ©n es posible observar el valor que esta cultura tiene para su comunidad.

Los niΓ±os y adolescentes hacΓ­an rugir las percusiones mientras que los adultos mayores de β€œla velha guarda” abrΓ­an la pista de baile para el resto de las participantes. DespuΓ©s la pista se llenΓ³ de talentosos y talentosas ejecutantes de samba con vestuarios en el tradicional verde y rosa que distingue a esta escuela. La noche cerrΓ³ con la presencia de las reinas y las princesas del carnaval que bailaron entre un pΓΊblico realmente animado.

In this RioLIVE! we attended the rehearsal for carnival at the samba school mangueira, one of the most traditional and awarded ones. As this year’s samba enredo lyrics says: Mangueira your scenery is poetry! This long awaited RioLIVE! Activity did justice to its reputation. The students were entertained by the different elements from the carnival parades that were present there such as the drumming band, the band’s rainha (queen) and princesa (princess), the mestre sala (room master) and porta bandeira (flag holder), the passistas (samba dancers) and much more. The power of samba was so strong that all of the more than 10 students there tried to dance the samba at least once. According to some students this was simply the best RioLIVE!
