2013 Carnival

The Wonders of Little Africa

Part 2

Sing Pimpolhos, it is your party
Today in Little Africa the heritage continues
With audacity, joy and high spirit
Come on drums explode its Carnival!
She was born in Pedra do Sal
Appeared at the sea’s feet
Source of leisure and culture
Little Africa grew around there
Samba was planted
Roots harvested
Her mark was left
Art has won
Dreaming in the hands of the writer
Enchants the world in color
Back to my Brazil
The seed has sprouted
Look at the kite in the air… hovering in the sky
Marbles, paper boats
So sweet the childhood, play soccer
As beautiful as the Port in the sun!
Mother Africa beauty and magic
Mandela is harmony
The Indian without hunger... so beautiful
Invites the runway
As the circus has arrived
Passion in the canvas, this aquarelle has moved us
Goodbye Italy, miss you already
Brazil my happiness Port
Making the joy of the city!
Sing Pimpolhos, it is your party
Today in Little Africa the heritage continues
With audacity, joy and high spirit
Come on drums explode its Carnival!

Little Africa is back! Through the narration of its mentor Machado de Assis, she comes to tell us details of her childhood! About the places she played, people that inspired her and stories that enchanted. With her best friend Samba, discovers the treasures of the Brazilian cultural diversity in the Port Region of Rio de Janeiro. But when the modernization and urban transformation begin to arrive, something strange happens… Samba begins to lose its memory. In a dream that takes Little Africa into historical moments of our world, she receives magic seeds. With these seeds she saves the memory of Samba and together they distribute harmony, wisdom, creativity, and lots of joy in the Youth Samba Schools Parade!
