About Carnaval: The Carnaval celebration in Rio de Janeiro is the largest and most famous in the world.  Scores of spectacular floats surrounded by thousands of dancers, singers and drummers dressed in elaborate costumes, masks and headdresses parade through the enormous Sambódromo Stadium in the heart of the city.  Droves of revelers party throughout the days leading into the start of Lent.

The origin of Brazil’s Carnaval dates back to a Portuguese pre-Lent festivity called “entrudo,” a chaotic event where participants threw mud, water and food at each other in a street event that often led to riots.  Rio de Janeiro’s first masquerade Carnaval parade took place in 1840 where the participants danced to polkas and waltzes.  The sound closely associated with the Brazilian Carnaval, the samba, did not become part of the festival until 1917.  Samba music is a mix of Angolan semba, European polka, African batuques, with touches of Cuban habanera and other musical styles.
