Unidos da Tijuca Brings Magic To Carnival Again




Samba school Unidos da Tijuca, winner of last year's Carnival in Rio, may be the frontrunner again this year, paying an homage to scary movies and featuring some of the most original floats and costumes from last night, as well as a magic opening act. Watch it in the video below.

I do envision returning to Rio de janeiro for CARNAVAL in 2012 or 2013. It is one event which everyone should partake during her or his life time.

My husband and I were at the Sambadromo to see Unidos da Tijuca and hoped they would be the winners again this year. We did not see Beija-Flor the next night so we cannot pass judgement on which one of these two talented and creative schools was the best. All I can say is that Unidos was incredibly entertaining and one of the most creative displays of talent, wit and costuming we have ever seen in our lives.
