2011 Carnival Theme

UDMSamba City of London Festival 2011

Lendas e Mistérios da Amazonia

This year’s theme is influenced by G.R.E.S Portela’s 2004 song Lendas e Mistérios da Amazonia – Legends and Mysteries of the Amazon. The river made of the tears of forbidden love, and the unspeakable beauty of the flowers, and the many real and folkloric inhabitants of the forest from shamans and female warriors to Saci Pererê the trickster archeetype.

Ô skindô lalá,
Ô skindô lelê,
Olha só quem vem lá
É o saci pererê
