The much-loved Cordão have been running their Carnival gathering since 1996, and set off on Sunday for another trip around the highways and byways of Centro with a merry band of appreciative folk. Mixing up the rhythms and providing a welcome diversion from the samba staples in the process, musically speaking the Boitatá bloco is tough to top as it troops from Rua do Mercado towards the Praça XV stage that they wrap things up from.
