Angola: Governor of Luanda Predicts Victory of Two Carnival Groups

Luanda — The governor of Luanda Province, Bento Bento, said last Sunday at the end of the Adult B carnival parade that the groups União Povo da Samba and União Twabichila, respectively from Samba and Viana municipalities are likely to ascend to category A.

According to the governor, speaking to the press, the two groups interpreted well their songs and he also praised the way the Dizanda dance was revived by União Twabichila, thus demonstrating a new way of performing at the carnival.

"There was a positive evolution in the organisation of the carnival groups in B category," the governor considered.

In this category, 13 carnival groups competed, representing their respective districts and municipalities of Luanda.

The main parade (Adults A Category) will happen on Tuesday.
