Austin's best and oldest Mardi Gras tradition, Carnaval Brasileiro
, originally hatched by homesick Brazilian exchange students at UT in the mid-Seventies, has been the highlight of the Austin Samba School
’s programming for the last 10 years. This year Susanna Sharpe & the Samba Police
return to the Carnaval stage, Feb. 28, after a 15-year hiatus.
