Leader of the band..


 Later in the afternoon at the  Brazilian Beach Carnival, waiting in what we thought the perfect spot for the parade, we heard the joyous rhythmic beat of the Banda Ziriguidum and Sambozzy drums long before we saw them. Oh, and about that perfect spot, it was.. until the human factor kicked in, I'm 5ft 2in, no match for a 6 footer :) Still I did manage a few shots and...


... as the dancers and musicians shimmied on by it was our cue to head home even knowing that the entertainment was going on well into the evening, five hours of foot tapping was long enough for my sad hamstring :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  2. It looks so odd to see people so close together and to see no masks. Glad that you had a good time, Grace!

  7. I fail to understand, Grace, why we are not like that!
    So much joy of life, fun. I´ve never been to Brazil, but Cuba is a bit like that.
    They don´t have money, they have a fire of joy inside and show and sing with their music.
    We have Beethoven. Bach... Oh, just leave me alone with that (it´s art, too, but sad art).
    You made me smile with this post 😍 Thank you.

  8. There’s nothing like a Brazilian beat to get the feet stomping.

  11. So much fun and colour Grace. We had a few members (just female) of the Ziriguidum band at one of the functions of the WA Portuguese Women Association in November last week and they were fabulous!

  12. I can almost hear the music just looking at your photos!
    P.s. as a fellow 5 foot 2 incher, I know what you mean.

  13. With the compelling beat of the drums, I think you should take up Samba dancing. What fun.
