Live transmission begins around midnight Rio time.
The Beija-Flor samba school captured the 2015 Rio de Janeiro Carnaval championship yesterday. They did so despite of the controversy about their parade floats depicting aspects of African some found disconcerting.
Well, in two months, we begin another season of practicing for the 2016 Carnaval. Hope to see you in Rio!
Yep, you can watch Carnival right now! Just scroll down to our post from a few days ago. The Bahia transmission is live and Rio is about to begin. What are you waiting for?
Well, not exactly. Trust me, things are well underway in Rio. But, Sunday night is the beginning of the parade of the Special Group Samba Schools. You do not want to miss this expression of Brazilian history and culture!
Here is the parade order for the next two days.
Before 2004, it was not all that common to see people from the U.S.A. in Brazil. That all changed with Snoop Dog’s 2003 “Beautiful” video, shot on location in Rio de Janeiro. Viewers see some historic sites and lots of beautiful imagery. Oh, yeah, Pharell is in the video, too. LOL
