Monday nights live music roda de samba sessions at Pedra do Sal have become the stuff of legend, with hundreds crowding onto the huge rock to drink and dance the night away and now Fridays can boast their own version, free from the confines of the working week ahead.

A couple of bars ply their trade on the square, but the vast majority here merely grab a can, find some space on the precariously sloping slab of stone, and settle in for a quintessentially carioca evening under the stars. The band sets up at the foot of the pedra, the crowds slowly massing around them as the night wears on and being induced into group singalongs at every opportunity. This corner of Rio by the rapidly changing port is literally the birthplace of the city itself let alone samba, giving a little historical context to the musical lesson too.
