    • Synopsis
    • An extraordinary musical journey to the roots of the Carnival and one of its most captivating, complex symbols: the murgas, bands of strolling working-class poets and musicians in clown-like painted faces, whose lyrics act as a tool of social criticism targeting allegedly corrupt politicians with a festive mix of artistic and political expression.
