“Flying the flag at LNYDP 2022 – and in Rio”
Porta Bandeira & Mestre Sala
The giant green and white London School of Samba flag was carried by our ‘Porta-Bandeira’ flag bearer, Davina Greeves, and Darren Gian as ‘Mestre-Sala’ or master of ceremonies.
These are the most important dancers in a Samba school as they hold and present the school’s flag. Their dance was dignified, courtly and balletic, engaging with each other and the spectators.
Davina and lead Mestre-Sala Marcelo dos Santos have been invited to represent the London School of Samba in the Unidos de Bangu parade in the 2022 Rio de Janeiro Carnival next month. However, it may be postponed to 2023.
