We are excited to show you the roots of Samba and Carnival. We want to help people understand that behind this enchanted party there is a beautiful sense of community and history. Workers, children, families, and artists all gather together to put on the greatest show in the world. To be part of the Samba school is to be part of a team built on love, joy, music, and glitter.
