Once they get going, nobody can ignore the infectious swing of the 160-strong Monobloco bateria. National and international hits are covered in the band's own inimitable way, the creativity and timing of the percussion still unrivalled anywhere among today's carnival contenders after thirteen years together. Having given street blocos a much needed injection of vitality since forming back in 2000, the band has been touring Brazil and more recently the world, offering a little bit of a break from the norm and reinterpreting everyone from Clara Nunes to O Rappa in the process. Their now-traditional pre-Carnival earm up season at Lapa's Fundição Progresso is always a big draw, and no matter how packed it gets, rest assured it won't come close to the Carnival-closing street party on Avenida Rio Branco on 17 February.
