Samba at Pedra do Sal

Enjoying some samba
Enjoying some samba

El viernes 23 de Mayo estuvimos en ‘Pedra do Sal’ que es un sector del centro dΓ³nde segΓΊn nuestro guΓ­a Ricardo, llegΓ³ la samba a Rio de Janeiro, por parte de los esclavos del norte de Brasil. Es una esquina mΓ‘gica dΓ³nde se conjugan las ventas callejeras, los turistas y locales, el grupo que toca samba en vivo y un fondo que parece hecho para una pelΓ¬cula con arte callejero y arquitectura carioca. Al pasar la noche , en medio de samba y caipirinhas , los alumnos tuvimos una excelente muestra de la cultura de la ‘cidade maravilhosa’ para despuΓ©s seguir de fiesta por Rio’

Pedra Do Sal is a place where the foreigners can discover Β the first place where samba arrived in Rio de Janeiro, coming from Salvador Bahia many years ago, the place is perfect for those that love Brazilian rhythms, drinking some beers and dance for a while. Β The streets and houses near represent the old Rio de Janeiro, some of the structures are still reformed for the government.

Β We visited β€œa Pedra Do Sal” with students from Colombia, Japan, Poland, England, Holland, Iceland, Venezuela, Italy and Switzerland. There they could enjoy “samba de raiz”, an expression used to define the old samba that used to be played in Rio and also Pedra do Sal.
