This is a video of Carnival rehearsals in São Paulo, Brazil. The Carnival in Brazil is a major part of the Brazilian Culture, and it is sometimes referred to by the Brazilians as the "Greatest Show on Earth". The first ever true carnival expression of this Brazilian festivity, officially recognized by Carnaval historians in Brazil, took place in Rio de Janeiro, with the "préstitos", very similar to a musical processions, in 1641, when John IV of Portugal was crowned as a King and parties were celebrated in Rio public streets.
