The Samba is not simply a dance or music; it is a way of life. Without samba, there would be no excitement or thrill at the carnival. The upbeat tempo and happy tunes will give you the right amount of energy needed to party through the Brazil Carnival week. The use of samba in carnival has become a culture that simply cannot be changed since there is no other type of music that can replace what samba symbolizes for the Brazilian carnival. The Sao Paulo Carnival is no exception, it truly lives up to what samba is all about: a culture and art and a way of living.
