Império do Papagaio was the winner of year 2015 samba parade competition
Helsinki Samba Carnaval attracts tens of thousands of people on the streets of Helsinki. Finnish samba schools from different parts of Finland competed in the Finnish championships and two schools were in the parade just for fun.
The competition was extremely close last year. The winning school, Helsinki based Império do Papagaio, won with an unconventional theme, punk. With safety pins, mohawks and neon colors they impressed the judges as well as the audience. Tampere based União da Roseira came very close second with only 0,1 points in difference. Their theme was about memories and their samba school idol Mocidade.
Congratulations to all participating schools! The Finnish samba community showed yet again a glimpse of Rio in the middle of Helsinki.
