Regarding the lyrics, the São Clemente school will talk about the hoaxes that permeate Brazil. For this, the group will have a humorous tone, since Marcelo Adnet, André Carvalho, Gabriel Machado, Pedro Machado, Gustavo Albuquerque, Camilo Jorge, Luiz Carlos França and Raphael Candel are responsible for the composition of the samba.

In this sense, the samba-enredo talks about the constant appearance of fake news, the power of social networks and other topics much discussed in the country.

About this, the song ends with the verses: “Brazil, shared, went viral, never even saw / And the whole country sambou like this / Fell into fake news”

Vila Isabel

Vila Isabel will honor Brasilia this year, bringing the samba-enredo. Thus, the country will be represented by a curumim (child, in Tupi-Guarani) who dreams of being under the wings of the jaçanã (bird), where he meets his people.

More than paying homage, it will also make a criticism. Soon, he will state that Brasília was built by a suffering people.

Willow tree

Salgueino, this time, will bring his plot around the Negro and his life in Brazil. In this way, in the first lines of the synopsis, the carnival director Alex de Souza will say “I was born free! / I am the son of“ Negro Malaquias ”, a daring fellow who hunted the“ runaway ”of the sinhô and sinhá farm, who were even “good”. And my mother, Leandra, was a pet captive. ”

Already the Independent Youth of Padre Miguel, despite having been away for a while, three years ago stands out for the quality of its samba-enredo.
