Erika Moura, TV Globo's new "Globeleza" danced samba nude except for body paint on TV Globo segues before and during Carnaval in 2015. A new dancer is chosen to be Globeleza every few years. Another dancer, Valeria Valenssa, was Globeleza for 14 years.
A fantastic look at some of the amazingly costumed sambistas and drum queens of the 2015 Carnaval (or "Carnival") of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with photos from the Beija-Flor, Grande Rio, Unidos de Tijuca, Imperatriz Leopoldinense, Portela, Salgueiro, Sao Clemente, Unidos da Tijuca, Vila Isabel and Viradouro samba schools (escolas de samba). Nudity or semi-nudity is no problem.
