Carnival in Recife, Pernambuco   

 


The Carnival in Recife and Olinda will not let you sit for a minute. These are the most exuberant and folkloric carnivals in Brazil. It is the true expression of a festivity like Carnival: “by the people, of the people and for the people”.

First of all, a brief of overview of the two cities. Recife is the capital of the state of Pernambuco, northeast Brazil. Olinda, also in the state of Pernambuco, is only 7 kilometers away from Recife. Both cities are important historical sites, full of antique buildings and paver stone streets.

Let's get back to the people. After all, they are the stars in this show.

The crowd, including the young and the old, go dancing across the city to the thrilling sound of “frevo”. If you want to try your steps on this spirited dance, prepare before and get in shape. It takes a lot of stamina to keep up but that's what makes the Carnival in Olinda and Recife fantastic.

On The Beat of the Frevo

“Frevo” is a vigorous dance inspired in polka. The movements are very strong but there is no choreography for it. The crowd makes the show but everyone keeps doing their own steps. The colorful umbrella the dancers carry completes the visual of this irresistible dance.

It is an inebriant experience to go dancing the days away on the streets of these two beautiful coastal historic cities. So, whenever coming to Brazil to experience this vibrant festival, you should consider the Carnival in Olinda and Recife.

During the Carnival, these two cities are becoming rising stars among top Brazil travel destinations.
