Carnival is returning to Rio, and Samba Schools are making the final touches before the main event rehearsing in the city streets. Salgueiro Samba School will bring a message of freedom and love to tens of thousands of spectators on the night of the world's most famous Carnival Parade.

"Delusions of a Red Paradise" reads the song that the school will sing at the Sambadrome. Red as the samba school colours, and paradise as a world with no violence, oppression, and intolerance. Each year samba schools choose a theme for their parade, varying from tributes to artists, countries, and cultures to social issues. Rio de Janeiro’s sambadrome parade will happen on February 19th and 20th, with 6 schools parading each night.
