Brazilian Samba School Chose Peru As Their Theme For The 2019 Sao Paolo Carnival


The Brazilian samba school “Unidos de Vila María” found inspiration on the Peruvian culture for their participation in the carnival parade next year, to take place in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

“Our rich culture continues to arouse admiration in the world, which is why the Brazilian samba school ‘Unidos de Vila María’ will pay tribute to Peru at the 2019 Sao Paulo Carnival, where carnival cars and dancers will represent various Peruvian prints”, Perú 21 reported.

The promotional poster already shines in the main avenues of Sao Paulo, the aforementioned media said. In it, you can see the Andean condor and a headdress of the Chimú culture with the title “Imperio do Sol”, which means “Empire of the Sun”.

“With more than 60 years of tradition and several carnivals won, the school ‘Unidos de Vila María’ chose Peru for its diversity in dances and colorful costumes typical of its culture.

Perú 21 also said that last year, this samba school was inspired by the Mexican culture, which allowed them to win the event. Other inspirations have been Japan and Korea in previous years.
