BRASILIA, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) – The ‘samba festival’ that Brazil used to celebrate every year in colorful costumes, dancing and singing, is no longer happening. The Latin American country has announced the postponement of next year’s festival due to coronavirus. The traditional carnival parade was to be held in Rio de Janeiro next February. Organizers have said they will suspend it indefinitely.
The international media, the BBC, reported in a report that the festival could be difficult to organize this time because of the lack of effective coronavirus vaccines. So members of various local samba schools will not be able to take part in the festival this time. However, Samba League Laiser President George Castanheira and others are looking for an alternative solution. They can do it only if they feel safe. They also did not decide on a new date.
However, the small-scale samba that is being held in various cities in Brazil will not stop. However, the organizers have to go through hardships for this. However, given the situation in this Latin American country, it is not yet certain whether such an event will be allowed next year.
