Carnival in Rio
Helmut Teissl (au) (ph); Russel Stockman (tr)
Each February, Rio de Janeiro erupts in an ecstatic fiesta of pulsating music, swirling dancers, & radiant costumes. From all over the world, tens of thousands of people descend upon Rio for the festivities. Carnival is the Brazilian version of Mardi Gras, an exuberant holiday that comes before Lent. In vibrant, full-color photos, this book captures the unique pageantry & euphoria of Carnival, the world’s largest party. The accompanying audio CD transports you to the streets of Rio where you can hear the samba, the dance of Carnival whose rhythms African slaves brought to Brazil. Twelve live recordings & 8 of the best sambas in the world are included. The book & CD offer an astonishing visual & audio adventure of the highest magnitude.
