Fun fact: did you know that samba was born in Bahia in the 19th century through a mix of African styles, but it wasn't until it took root and developed in Rio de Janeiro that it became the iconic Brazilian dance that we know today? At the time, samba was not well regarded in society, and those who sang and danced it could even go to jail! Enjoy your ride and get ready to discover the rich history and vibrant culture of Rio de Janeiro.
