RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - On Sunday, February 11th, Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel will close the first day of Grupo Especial's parade at Carnival 2018. Expected to enter the Sambódromo at 3:45 AM (already on Monday), the samba school promises to amaze the jury and the audience with a vibrant samba enredo on India and its culture.
Different from the other samba schools, Mocidade was actually born from a local soccer club, the Independente Futebol Clube. It was in 1955 that eleven members of this soccer team decided to found Mocidade Independente . . .
