About your host

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.

About G.R.C.E.S.M Pimpolhos da Grande Rio

We are the Pimpolhos of Grande Rio, a Youth Samba School and a non-governmental organization. Our goal is to promote social inclusion and educate through art, culture, and Carnival. We are based on three pillars—the Youth Parade, our essence; the Carnival School, our education and training program; and the Carnaval Experience, the organization's socioeconomic tool to foster sustainability.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to G.R.C.E.S.M Pimpolhos da Grande Rio. .
