Tonight was magic! I had a wonderful time dancing Samba at Mangueira! Such a dream to be back! Even had the honor of giving a💋 to the legendary school flag. So much respect ✊ for this samba school and community. Such an incredible energy always! It’s something out of this world to hear Mangueira 2019 enredo music live! We have been dancing to the recording back in LA, but being here and dancing to it with the live bateria... I had goosebumps! 🙏🙌 🎼Mangueira, tira a poeira dos porões Ô, abre alas pros teus heróis de barracões Dos Brasil que se faz um país de Lecis, jamelões São verde- e- rosa as multidões #samba #mangueira @mangueira_oficial
