Carnival-time Rio in 1988, the centennial of the abolition of slavery in Brazil. The author spent a year in the Mangueira favela, and joined its famous samba school.

For one year, Alma Guillermoprieto lived in Manguiera, a village near Rio de Janeiro, to learn the ritual of samba – the sensuous song and dance marked by a rapturous beat – and to take part in Rio’s renowned carnivale parade.
