      Evening Show of Brazilian Spectacular Folklore

      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
      From (USD) $278 Per Person (Based on 2)
      • Dancing: With their roots stemming from West African culture, both the samba and the dancing martial art of capoeira offer unique movements that will mesmerize you.
      • Music: Samba music offers a unique fusion of Portuguese, native Brazilian, and West African sounds. Its rhythms are vibrant, and you'll find it hard to stay in your seat with such a lively beat.
      • Drinks: Be sure to buy your drinks before the show, because while the music plays and the dancers perform, you won't find a single staff member to serve you a cool libation. Drinks are not included in the tour.
      About this Rio de Janeiro tour

      It's like carnival in Rio, but without all the crowds. At Plataforma, one of Rio's most famous theaters, you'll be treated to a show that will take you to the heart of Brazil. There's dancing and music that will inspire you to jump from your seat and join in the fun.

      At the center of it all are two of Brazil's most famous dances – the samba and the capoeira – the latter of which is actually a form of martial art. Capoeira is a combination of West African and Brazilian influences, developed in the 17th century, and while it truly is an art form of movement, it was born as a tool for survival by escaped slaves.

      No worries, you won't be engaging in any battles here. It's all a party, with eye-popping costumes, catchy rhythms, and a bit of cultural history. You'll be treated to the origins of Brazil's popular music, a mixture of Portuguese, indigenous peoples, and African influences.

      The show ends in a parade of costumes that represent the colors of the Brazilian flag – green (woodlands and forests), yellow (the golden riches of the country), blue (the sky), and white (peace). And by the end of the show, you'll feel as if you're a card-carrying citizen of Brazil, too. Or at least you'll want to be.

       Ain't that a kick in the head?

      From the 16th through the 18th centuries, sugar plantation conditions were so bad that the only way for slaves to survive was to escape to quilombos, isolated communities in the middle of nowhere. To defend their communities, quilombo warriors practiced capoeira, and were so skilled that it took a whole infantry unit to capture one warrior, who defended himself with this "strangely moving, fighting technique."
