I'm Cinthia, I'm 27 years old and by now I call the City of Samba my home. To be more specifically the warehouse of the Samba School Acadêmicos do Grande Rio in Rio de Janeiro.

I was born in a Favela Called Vila Operaria, in the City where Grande Rio belong to Duque de Caxias, so I'was able to part of the social project supported by the youth samba school Pimpolhos da Grande Rio since I was 9. Through this project I got the chance to learn other langue, music, dance and getting more prepared to face the real life. Before the pandemic of Corona Virus I used to work as a tour guide of the Carnaval Experience receiving hundreds of people per year sharing with them the magical history, showing the behind scenes of the biggest open air show on Earth, the Rio de Janeiro's Carnival. Now I can keep open the doors of my sweet home for you guys.

Was great to join the experience. Not only I learned about Samba culture, but also learned how to play drums. It was super fun more than expected to play frypan as a drum.

Our office had a wonderful time at the backstage experience! The hosts were engaging, fun and very knowledgable. We would definitely do it again! The experience was a mix of pre-recorded, professionally edited videos and live touring. The pre-recorded videos had great information but the highlight was certainly live component! I do wish the video quality was a little better as there were moments of pixelation and choppy sound--but nothing that would keep me from recommending the experience. If we booked again, I would certainly come with more questions. The hosts were so eager to share their extensive knowledge of tradition, culture, religion and samba I wish we would have tapped into that more.

é impressionante como o brasileiro é criativo e consegue fazer do limão, uma limonada! Experiência riquíssima culturalmente sobre a origem do samba. Como a ala das baianas agora fazem sentido para mim! Os gringos devem ficar loucos com esta experiência
