It is the Rio Carnival being held at Rio De Janeiro where many dancers fluttered with grace into the last round of the samba championship on Monday, to make the Zika-struck Brazilians forget all about their problems.
There was a team of about six samba schools that had been shortlisted for the day. The popular dancers spread here and there in their beautiful vivid feather headdresses with minutely detailed accessories and garments to give their all night performance parades to the populace.
It was the following day, Sunday where the other rival six Samba schools fulfilled their performances relating the samba dance.
“THE MOCICADE SAMBA SCHOOL DRUM QUEEN”
This Finale was enough alluring to attract forward about a five million populace who ran to watch the beautiful dances.
“REVEALERS OF THE GRANDE SAMBA SCHOOL PERFORMANCE”
“THE SAMBA PARADE”
The winner shall be announced on Wednesday which shall also likely be the closing ceremony known as “the greatest show on Earth”. Keeping in mind that a special dancing stadium had been built for the very purpose, the event was well enjoyed when about 70,000 people danced off their asses right from Sunday to Monday in the Sambadrome stands. The event was all fully bling-y, detailed and fancifully embellished.
The vivacious celebration of bright colors, the glitterati, the beating drums, joyous song and harmonious dancing was the temporary cure much needed for the Brazilians who had been very weary over the past few weeks due to the widespread Zika virus in the country.
One of the visitors, Luanny Victoria comments that the people of Brazil don’t need to find enough reasons to party hence it is an eternal kind of love for partying, be it Zika, they can’t forget that it’s the country of Samba!
