What you'll do

You will participate in the best samba events from the Center to the North Zone of Rio. A non-classic tourist circuit offered by the tourism agencies in Rio. By getting in touch with real samba musicians, you will learn about the historical and cultural basis that has kept samba alive and ever renewed for over 200 years. This sambista lover will accompany you for 3 hours on each of Monday's samba events. The first in the north of the city and the second in the center of Rio, our little Africa. We also have vacancies for samba wheels on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in different locations of the city. For Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday sambas the meeting point is always in the central region of the city. And the experience lasts 5 hours. Choose your day and let's goooo! Get ready for a dip in the best carioca lifestyle by visiting Rio's most traditional samba events with me! No lines, comfort and transportation guaranteed.

Luciana

Hi, I'm Luciana Rosario. A journalist, real carioca and black culture activist. I am a partner of samba clubs and schools, created as a resistance and strengthening of Afro-Brazilian culture in Rio de Janeiro. I work at Carnival, in the press office of the organization of the largest open show on earth. As a student of samba carioca, I parade for 6 years in the main samba schools of the Special Group of Rio de Janeiro, in the community wings. Among the samba schools I have already paraded are Salgueiro, Unidos da Tijuca and the last one was at Carnival of 2019, the Independent Youth of Padre Miguel. With Samba I learned more about the history itself that helped to constitute the life of the Brazilian. And I want to pass this knowledge on to you!
