Brazil is synonymous with Samba, especially during the annual carnival hosted every year in the country. This year was no different -- in spite of the soccer-loving nation reeling under an economic crisis--Brazilians enjoyed the festivities to the fullest. On February 24, the five-day long Carnival Rio kicked-off in Rio de Janerio, the capital city.

The best part about the carnival is the samba dance. Those gorgeous women in colourful attire with their typical body movements are sight to be witnessed and enjoyed.

Here we bring you a few pictorial glimpses from the colourful festival-high on fun element.
