RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Carnival season may not officially start until February 4th, but festivities are already arriving in Rio de Janeiro. This week, the city is getting ready with pre-Carnival blocos and rehearsals scheduled in various parts of the city.
Bloco Noites do Norte will kick off this week’s blocos, with a public rehearsal scheduled to take place at Pedra do Leme tonight, Wednesday January 25th, from 7PM.
Normally a popular but small bloco, the group takes its musical influences from Pará and Caribbean guitar music. More information can be found on . . .
