More About Acadêmicos do Tucuruvi 2010:

The samba school from Tucuruvi, on the North Side of S. Paulo, has a wealth of colorful subthemes to choose from as it celebrates São Luis, capital of Maranhão. The perspectives for floats are mesmerizing, what with all the beaches, colonial tile buildings, coconut trees, rich food, reggae and folk traditions such as boi bumbá in São Luís. This year's costumes seem ready to reflect the city's variegated culture and colors.
