Watch the video below for more details.

Samba Compilations, featuring Mayara Lima

I’m a “Sambista” at heart; a passista and musa in my mind! I love Brazilian samba; the music, the rhythm, the dance, the costumes, the parties– just everything.

Salgueiro Samba School in Rio de Janeiro (2014)

In August 2014, I visited the Salgueiro Samba School’s quadra for their weekly public rehearsal (ensaio), which basically turns into a big party! It was an amazing experience. That night I made new memories and new friends. This is an abridged version of the original video.

I do NOT own the rights to the song in the video: “la vem salgueiro” by os originais.

I’m annoyed and flattered by all the people who have posted the original video as their own. So, thanks and you’re welcome. LOL. #watermarkednow
