Brazilian Samba Carnaval emerges and thrived in Austin, because long ago it became a city of open attitudes and spontaneity, due in large part to the university and bohemian attitudes.
Two bands will pump out traditional Rio Carnaval music non-stop. Academicos da Opera, Austin’s own “escola de samba” with 100 drummers and dancers will alternate with Beleza Brasil a group of 11 Rio carnaval veterans who play classic sambas, marchinhas, and frevos of the best party on the planet, Wacky, risqué costumes and non-stop dance around out the festivities.
