Notes about the song (Press Release 2007)

Sambão boasts members from over 20 different countries.  The lyrics of our original composition theme song ("Enredo") contain 12 of these nations.  The lyrics state that although we come from "many different lands" we all have once thing in common.  We all need Love!

While written as a traditional fast Samba, the middle of the song contains a "break" where the entire contingent sings the chorus from the Beatle's "All You Need is Love" complete with the requisite horn flourishes.  Contingent members will also wear small flags representing their home countries or national origins illustrating that with Love, the whole world feels great!

Sambão always emulates the Escolas de Samba, or Samba Schools of Rio de Jeniero, Brazil.  Every year they compose and original theme song (Enredo) and illustrate the lyrics through costumes, color coordination, bateria costumes, and float design.  The contingent always includes the required traditional elements from Rio's Escolas such as the Lead Commission (Commisão de Frente), multiply wings (aulas) of dancers, an "aula" of baihnas (dancers in traditional large hoop-skirt dresses), a flag bearer and her guard (Porta Bandeira and Mestre Sala), a Queen of the Bateria (Rainha de Bateria), the bateria, and one or more floats/sound trucks with the singers (Puxadores) and stringed musicians.
