Brazil’s national dance lights up Strictly Come Dancing
Developed towards the end of the 19th century, the samba originated in Brazil and has come to be seen as a symbol of both the country and the flamboyant Brazilian carnivals. After several weeks of rumbas, foxtrots and tangos, the smash hit BBC TV show Strictly Come Dancing featured the samba as one of the dance options on Saturday night’s show.
With series favourites Scott Maslen and Natalie Lowe, and Matt Baker and Aliona Vilani both electing to take to the floor with their samba, there was a strong Brazilian flavour to the popular teatime show.
In addition, viewer’s favourites Ann Widdecombe and Anton du Beke also performed a Brazilian samba on Saturday’s show.
Brazilian public get behind their X-Factor star
Brazil is also getting plenty of positive PR coverage in the huge ITV show The X-Factor. Flamboyant, energetic singer Wagner Carrilho is originally from the South American country and the nation are getting right behind their famous export.
The Metro reports that the Brazilian public are ‘going nuts’ for the 54 year old, saying ‘devoted fans are following the 54-year-old retired PE teacher’s mantras, which include ‘live every day as if you will die’ and, of course, ‘love the ladies!’.
Brazil is one of the world’s best performing economies and one of its great property hotspots. Prices in the country are booming ahead of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games whilst a burgeoning middle class drive demand for new homes.
Nicholas Marr from leading Brazilian property specialists HomesGoFast.com said: “Brazil is getting plenty of positive publicity on Saturday night TV right now. It is one of the most popular countries with our overseas investors and both the Strictly sambas and Wagner demonstrate everything that is fun, energetic and vibrant about this brilliant country.”
