"This night will lift your soul"
Carnavaleso Paulo Barros of the Rio samba school Unidos da Tijuca always comes up with obscure enredo titles, but there is some explanation. The theme will look at the fear caused by horror, pense and detective films. It will feature some of the biggest names in Brazilian film production. Tijuca is planning to show the spirit with which Brazilians overcome their fears. They will construct a film in the avenida, and will invite the onlookers to watch it. "we will show the strength of a people which ..... isn't firghtened to be happy" says Paulo Barros.
The theme has been announced - now it is up to the school's samba song composers to come up with a song that everyone will want to sing. The composers will write their songs, and one of these will be chosen through a competition lasting several months, and culminating this aautumn. Commentators point out that the theme is rather vague and it will be difficult to write a stirring, poetic samba. But I'm sure there are some in the Tijuca ala of composers who will be up to the job.
