Sambodromo Samba Parade Rehearsals

Rehearsals in the Sambodromo for the 2015 Rio Carnival Samba Parade


Check here the Sambodromo rehearsal schedule for the 2015 Rio Carnival Samba Parade.
These samba school rehearsals for the Samba Parade take place already on the samba runway itself in the Sambodromo. They start in December.

The very last rehearsal is the most spectacular show with lights and sound system already in place for final testing.
The champions of the previous year's parade are invited to.
After that last rehearsal, the biggest and most traditional street band (Cordão do Bola Preta) gives a show at beginning of the Parading Avenue, getting into the samba runaway playing old traditional samba songs.

SAMBA PARADE Rehearsals in the Sambodromo

The Samba Parade rehearsals in the Sambodromo are a bit like the Samba Parade itself however without costumes and floats.

Outside the Sambodromo...

Outside the Sambodromo there is an eating area (of Brazilian style - do not expect any sophistication here) which includes little drinks and barbecue stands. Lots of booze and "junk" food. The essence of Brazilian life.

There are also rehearsals in the samba schools' halls every week.
