The last time I attended the Banda de Ipanema, in Rio de Janeiro, was to do the Explain It to Gazelle , a short improvisation exercise video for the movie company  Terranova 8 Films, and that was back in 2013.
This Carnival, I was very happy that I managed to be in Rio two out of the three times when this very famous band take the fun to the streets of Ipanema.
My look for both times was fun and simple, first because it is the carnival vibe of it and second because it is so hot. My idea was to be walking around dragging a phone talking to Adele, God, my mother, husband or whoever came to mind….I had the best interaction with everybody…and I can surely say that I will be back next year.
