Passistas – Carnival’s leading samba dancers – They are usually on the sound truck behind the percussionists or find their way marching along with the school down the runway. One of the most important elements in the samba school parade is the rhythm and the lyrics of the theme song. The song must energize the dancers and the audience generating an intense desire to dance. The song must be related to the chosen theme and this theme should also be represented in the costumes, floats, and wings. This wing is dedicated exclusively to those women who have toiled for many years preparing their samba school for Carnival after Carnival. It is a way for the younger generations to show their appreciation for all the love and support these wonderful ladies have given to their samba school.
Towering over the city with its welcoming arms, the Christ the Redeemer statue is the iconic symbol of Rio de Janeiro and it’s something you must visit while you’re here. Set atop 709 meter-high Corcovado Mountain, this monument has been watching over the city for nearly 100 years. Views from the deck below the 30-meter-high monument out over the city, ocean, and surrounding mountains are incredible on a clear day. For the famous shot of yourself in front of the statue, walk about halfway down the stairs to the lower deck and shoot backward towards the statue. Visiting Christ the Redeemer isn’t all about views and selfies, the ride up to the top on the incline railway is half the fun. Ascending through the lush jungle, the steep ride to the top takes about 20 minutes and provides beautiful views.
Carnaval is the biggest event of the year on the city’s calendar. The festival brings a riot of color and endless action to the streets of Rio each February (sometimes late January, depending on the year). Some visitors plan their entire trip to Brazil around Carnival, and if you are going to attend, you need to do some serious advanced planning. The celebrations begin shortly after New Year, but the splendor and extravagance reaches its spectacular climax in the four days before Ash Wednesday, attracting hundreds of thousands of spectators to its street parades, samba parties, and shows. Other Brazilian cities celebrate Carnaval; it is also a major tourist event in Bahia and Recife, but Rio’s is the most lavish.
Each wing has a specific role to play according to the school’s theme. In between these wings are the floats that separate each section. To get the attention of the judges, the floats are designed with special effects. Two of the more spectacular floats have been a fire-breathing dragon and a metal eagle that soared along the parade route flapping his wings. The elaborately decorated floats are pushed by men while others are motorized. You will find a group of mesmerizing samba dancers along with special guests atop these floats. Many celebrities lend their support to samba schools so don’t be surprised to find some of your favorite stars taking part in the parade. Many of the star performers who ride the floats have to pay for their own costumes and they can cost a fortune. In some situations, the samba school will absorb the cost. One of the highest honors a samba school member can receive is a place on the float.
