Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel was the third school to parade in Rio on the first day of the parades. The samba school tells the story of artists from Alto do Moura, Caruaru district (PE).
The plot “Terra de Meu Céu, Estrelas de Meu Chão” tells the story of the students of Mestre Vitalino, an artisan who excelled in his clay works.
The floats set up by the samba school make various references to the Northeast city, highlighting the wilderness and the artworks of the honored craftsman.
Dudu Nobre and Sandra de Sá were highlights of the Mocidade Independente’s front committee. One of the cars represented the quince tree, one of the symbols of the region.
Giovana Angélica, drum queen of Mocidade Independente, performed a chess piece during the parade.
