Where : Sao Paulo, Brazil
The Samba is a diverse and versatile art form and people never get tired of listening to its beat which is as contagious as the Carnival fever that spreads throughout Sao Paulo before Ash Wednesday every year. From samba songs to samba themes, the Carnival captures the entertainment world for a week. The extravaganza may seem like an indulgence to some but is in fact a unifying force for those who live in the favelas, the birthplace of the samba. The fierce sense of tradition that the Carnival invokes is also spiritual nourishment for the Brazilians who are proud of their heritage.
