Hydraulics in Samba rhythm

Close to 90,000 spectators in the stands and more than 100 million in front of the TV: Every year, at the carnival in Rio, the best Samba schools compete against one another and court the love of the public and the jury. “Portela”, one of the biggest Samba schools, enhances the hot rhythm, the perfect choreography and the creative costumes with modern technology.

A hydraulic system from Rexroth is creating spectacular effects on one of the parade floats. Until the school's competing act in the carnival nights, this will of course remain secret.
