Will You be at the Rio Carnival 2017?
Rio Carnival is Samba
Street Parties, Samba Parades and Flashy Carnival Balls
The Africans have subsequently influenced the Carnival with the introduction of samba music in 1917. Samba is now considered as traditional Brazilian music, and you can experience its rhythm at the Rio Carnival 2017.
Almost all the music played during Rio Carnival is samba. It is a uniquely Brazilian music originating from Rio, a dance form that was invented by the poor Afro-Brazilians.

An Insight into Carnival history
The word Carnival originates from the Portuguese ‘Carne Vale’, interpreted as ‘Farewell to meat’.
The phrase refers to the Carnival as being the ultimate celebration before a period of abstinence from alcohol, meat and pleasure begins. This period lasts up to the Easter holiday, the date when Jesus Christ rose from the dead.
