Samba Party Pedra do Sal


Overview & Highlights

We will participate in the most historical and traditional Samba Party in Rio de Janeiro, at Pedra do Sal, in the area which is known as “Little Africa”.

The guide will tell you the history of the area and why it is knows as the birth place of Samba, which in turn impulsed the Rio Carnival. We will understand why this area was very much neglected and hidden before the Rio Olympics 2016 started the revitalisation process in this port area.

We will help you to get into the the spirit and mingle with the locals by teaching you some useful Carioca Portuguese expressions and basic Samba steps.
