Carnival Fever





There is a popular belief that in Brazil the year only starts after Carnvial. Be this an exaggeration or not, there is not much else being talked about on the country9s blogosphere: everyone is dusting off their costumes, getting into the mood and counting down the days for the biggest street party on Earth.

Carnival Roots

The origins of carnival date back to the ancient Greek spring festival in honor of Dionysus, the god of wine. The Romans adopted the celebration with Bacchanalia (feasts in honor of Bacchus, the Roman equivalent to Dionysus), and Saturnalia, where slaves and their masters would exchange clothes in a day of drunken revelry. Saturnalia was later modified by the Roman Catholic Church into a festival leading up Ash Wednesday. It quickly evolved into a massive celebration of indulgences - one last gasp of music, food, alcohol, and sex before Lent - before the 40 days of personal reflection, abstinence, and fasting until Easter (not exactly what the Church probably had in mind). 40 days of purging sins, preceded by a week filled with virtually every known sin. The word itself comes from Latin, "Carne Vale" or "Farewell to the Flesh".

Join for three nights of gritty, hard-hitting, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Latin, Afro-Cuban, Afrobeat, Reggae and Funk music. Featuring Bay Area9s hottest live bands and Dj9s. Carnival Fever will take place May 23-25th at  12 Galaxies and in San Francisco.
