Bloco: Cortejo Afro
The newest bloco Afro on the Carnival circuits, Cortejo Afro made their Carnival debut in 1999. Born out of an established Candomblé house in Salvador, Ilê Axé Oiá, Cortejo Afro was founded by artist Alberto Pitta. Concerned about the predominance of Axe music, Cortejo Afro was formed in an attempt to reestablish the African identity of Carnival.
