Helsinki Samba Carnaval / Helsinki Samba Carnaval / Carnaval de Samba d’Helsinki / Carnaval de Samba de Helsínquia

In English:

Samba in Helsinki.

Can You image, that even in Helsinki, there is Samba Carnival – maybe no. Yes, we have every year and this year Samba Carnival was held in Helsinki for the 27th time. For us it was the second time. This year the Samba parade was held on Saturday, June 10. Alongside the streets, there are thousands of people listening to the Carnaval Samba music and watching scantily dressed Samba dancers.

In Finland, we have many Samba schools where You can start Samba dancing. ”Império do Papagaio” in Helsinki, “Samba Carioca” in Turku, “Samba el Gambo” in Kokkola, “Forca Natural” and “Samba Maracanã” in Lahti, “Samba Tropical” in Seinäjoki and “União da Roseira”in Tampere. The number of spectators varies between 20000 and 30000 yearly.

Many Samba dancers buy material for dresses and headdress from internet, some buy old dresses and modify themselves. Making of glamorous samba dresses is a slow handiwork meaning that it must begin months before the carnival.

We went in good time the same street corner where we were in 2009. If You expect to see a parade of scantily dressed Samba dancers among my photos, then You will be disappointed. Of course, I show only them, but only few. Instead of them, I show costumes and beautiful, gorgeous, colorful and dazzling feather Samba headdresses. I love them and they are worth for shooting photos. First four photos shot my wife and the rest are mine.

En español:

Samba en Helsinki.

¿Puede imagen ? que incluso en Helsinki, hay Carnaval de Samba – tal vez que no. Sí, lo tenemos cada año y este año Samba Carnaval se celebró en Helsinki por la 27 ª vez. Para nosotros fue la segunda vez. Este año se celebró el desfile de Samba el sábado 10 de junio. Junto a las calles, había miles de personas que escuchaban la música de Samba Carnaval y que vienen para ver las bailarines de samba escasamente vestidos.

En Finlandia, tenemos muchas escuelas de samba donde puedes empezar y aprender a bailar samba. “Império do Papagaio” en Helsinki, “Samba Carioca” en Turku, “Samba el Gambo” en Kokkola, “Forca Natural” y “Samba Maracanã” en Lahti, “Samba Tropical” en Seinäjoki y “União da Roseira” en Tampere. El número de espectadores varía entre 20000 y 30000 anualmente.

Muchos bailarines de samba compran material para vestidos y tocados de Internet, algunos compran vestidos antiguos y se modifican los. La fabricación de vestidos glamurosos de samba es una obra lenta que significa que debe iniciarselas meses antes del carnaval.

Fuimos en buen tiempo en la misma esquina donde estábamos en 2009. Si esperas ver un desfile de bailarines de samba escasamente vestidos, te decepcionará. Por supuesto, las muestro, pero sólo unas pocas. En lugar de ellas, vos muestro trajes y hermosos, magníficos, coloridos y deslumbrantes plumas de Samba. Las amo y valen la pena para sacar fotos. Las primeras cuatro fotos sacaba mi esposa y el resto de fotos son mis.

En francais:

Samba à Helsinki.

Pouvez-vous imaginer que, même à Helsinki, il y a Carnaval de Samba – peut-être pas. Oui, nous l’avons chaque année et cette année, le carnaval de Samba a eu lieu à Helsinki pour la 27ème fois. Pour nous c’était la deuxième fois. Cette année, le défilé de Samba a eu lieu le samedi 10 juin. Aux côtés des rues, des milliers de personnes écoutaient la musique de Carnaval de Samba et regardaient des danseurs de Samba peu habillés.

En Finlande, nous avons beaucoup d’écoles de Samba où vous pouvez commencer danser Samba. “Império do Papagaio” à Helsinki, “Samba Carioca” à Turku, “Samba el Gambo” à Kokkola, “Forca Natural” et “Samba Maracanã” à Lahti, “Samba Tropical” à Seinäjoki et “União da Roseira” à Tampere. Le nombre de spectateurs varie entre 20000 et 30000 annuellement.

De nombreuses danseuses de Samba achètent du matériel pour les robes et la coiffe de Samba d’internet, certains achètent d’anciennes robes et se les modifient. La fabrication de robes glamour de samba est un travail lent, ce qui signifie qu’on doit commencer les à faire des mois avant le carnaval.

Nous sommes allés en temps utile dans le même coin de rue où nous étions en 2009. Si vous attendrez voir un défilé de dansseuses de Samba peu habillées, vous serez déçu. Bien sûr, je les montre à vous, mais seulement quelques-unes. Au lieu d’eux, je montre des costumes et des coiffes de plumes de samba superbes, magnifiques, colorées et éblouissantes. Je les aime et elles valent la peine de photographier. Les premières quatre photos ont photographiées par ma femme et les autres sont les miennes.

Em Português:

Samba em Helsínquia. Portugali ok.

Você pode imaginar que, mesmo em Helsínquia, há o Carnaval de Samba – talvez não. Sim, temos todos os anos e este ano o Carnaval de Samba foi realizado em Helsinque pela 27ª vez. Para nós foi a segunda vez. Este ano, o desfile de Samba foi realizado no sábado 10 de junho. Pelas ruas, havia milhares de pessoas ouvindo a música do Carnaval de Samba e assistindo as Sambistas escassamente vestidas.

Na Finlândia, temos muitas escolas de samba onde você pode iniciar a dança do Samba. “Império do Papagaio” em Helsinque, “Samba Carioca” em Turku, “Samba el Gambo” em Kokkola, “Forca Natural” e “Samba Maracanã” em Lahti, “Samba Tropical” em Seinäjoki e União da Roseira em Tampere. O número de espectadores varia entre 20000 e 30000 por ano.

Muitos dançarinos de samba compram materiais para vestidos e cocar de penas da internet, alguns compram vestidos antigos e se modificam. Fazer vestidos de samba glamurosos é um cocar de penas e fazendo-los é lento, o que significa que deve começar meses antes do carnaval.

Nós fomos em boa hora a mesma esquina em que estávamos em 2009. Se você espera ver um colorido desfile de dançarinas escassamente vestidos, você ficará desapontado. Claro, eu mostrarei -vos las, mas apenas algumass. Em vez de eles, mostro trajes os fantásticos, lindos, coloridos e deslumbrantes cocares de penas de Samba. Eu amo-los e valem a pena para fotografar. As primeiras quatro fotos tirou a minha esposa e o restentes são minhas.

  21. Hello.
    Samba carnival is held every year also in Tokyo.
    http://www.asakusa-samba.org/
    (So sorry, Japanese only)

    I didn’t know that Samba carnival held in Helsinki.
    There is no image of Samba in either Helsinki or Tokyo.
    It’s interesting.
    It seems a wonder sight that many dancers colorful costumes parade the city of Helsinki.
    Thank you for your nice photos, I could enjoy them.

    P.S.
    Thank you for telling me about Marimekko outlet.
    I visited the outlet in 2009, 2012, 2016.

        • Hello Sue.

          You are welcome. The real summer starts from the beginning of June and ends at the end of August. Best time to visit northern areas is the end of August to mid-September. Biking is possible everywhere and then off highways offer best sceneries and views. Hiring a car is excellent choice. I am ready to answer to Your question when You plan Your trip to my country.

          Happy midsummer.

  23. thank you for posting these superb pictures! every year i wish to see it, but i always get turned off by the crowds, LOL! so seeing these from home is really much better. i am guessing/hoping you will post the Kaivopuisto airshow next? i was there with my husband (who’s crazy about planes), but did not take pictures because we wanted to enjoy seeing everything with our own eyes. still, seeing pictures from that event would be delightful. 🙂

    • Hello Saxsilverain.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. It warmed my heart. Your husband will be disappointed, when I tell that I have no photos from Kaivopuisto airshow. I have seen two airshows before the time of digital cameras. If Your husband is crazy about planes, then he has to visit:

      Aviation Museum of Central Finland.

      This museum is near to the town of Jyväskylä in Tikkakoski. It has changed its name when we visited there. There is one special plane there, which is unique in the whole world – Brewster Model 239 (BW-372).

      In my post I have many photos about it.

      If Your husband loves also commercial airplanes, then I have old post in which old DC- 3 visits Räyskälä:

      Vintage DC-3 Dakota.

      Happy midsummer.

    • Hello Connie.

      Thank You leaving your kind comment. Hula and flamenco are known in Finland also, but not so popular any more.

      すばらしい日を過してください。

  29. Spectacular photos! And I certainly would not have expected to see Samba dancers in Finland! I especially like the head dresses. What a wonderful event!

    • Hello Nilla.

      Thank You for Your praising comment. Last weekend we saw also Samba dance in the middle of nowhere. No Carnival Samba, but hot fast rhythms of Samba. Finland offers surprises. 🙂

      Have a nice day!

  36. The costumes are incredible indeed; the participants have been very creative. This kind of carnival does not form part of our traditions, probably because of the diversity of races and population groups in South Africa. I would not mind joining in on such an occasion.

    • Hello Hester.

      Thank You. How nice to read that I did find one thing from my country which would love to see. Have You ever though that in my country in the north in summer, sun never sets? Midsummer is the apex of summer, although summer continues two months, before autumn comes. Many Finns go to visit their summer cottages and spend their vacations there. In Finland, we have 187 888 lakes. Many make cruises on lakes at midsummer.

      We have spent one of our midsummer at Koli, national park, which one of most beautiful place in Southern Finland. Once we made a midsummer Cruise on a lake in southern Finland. These posts shows our midsummer:

      Koli national park.

      Midsummer cruise.

      Have a nice day!
