All set for Samba Night

HARARE - The ongoing Harare International Carnival will go a gear up at the Private Lounge tomorrow night where 12 Brazilian dancers will showcase the samba dance which incorporates elements of many different South American dances.

Dubbed “Samba Night,” the event is expected to feature Brazilian dancers wearing body paint, bikinis, sequins and feathers with a dose of glitter.

According to Private Lounge proprietor Biggie Chinoperekwei, who is organising the event in partnership with the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA), the Samba dancers are scheduled to jet in today.

“We are done with the preparations and we have already secured police clearance. Admission is $10, the event will commence at 9pm and we have labelled it a no under 18 show.

“This is due to the Samba dancers’ costumes which may not be favourable to some,” said Chinoperekwei.

The Private Lounge proprietor added that the 12 Samba dancers, who will be mostly female, will share the stage with Bev and Zoe who almost outshined them last year.

“With thousands of people attending last year’s street party which was an accumulation of several exciting events, the carnival experience was testimony that people love to party.

“Last year as Devine Assignments, ZTA gave us the privilege to host the Samba Night which turned out to be an unforgettable night of dance and beauty.

“This year, ZTA has also tasked us to put together a similar Samba Night in Harare and we are promising yet another classic night out with the sexy Brazilian Samba girls.

“The Samba Night will not only be about the Brazilians as it will certainly benefit several local models and dancers that include Bev and Zoey who are part of the mix.

“We hope local models and dancers will rise to the occasion and match the Samba girls,” he said.

Just like last year, Chinoperekwei expects revellers to come donning costumes in all formats and colours to reflect the carnival mood.

The Samba Dance, which was developed in Brazil during the 19th century, is widely known as the dance of celebration and joy associated with the world-famous Rio Carnival that takes place in Rio de Janeiro where it attracts more than five million people every year.
