Segura!

Carnaval in Maastricht 2012. I know, this looks like a scene from Lord of the Rings, but this an real existing  samba group. The group is called "Segura!" Escola de Samba, and they make Brazilian style Samba music. And dressed up like something between Darth Vader, Orks, and black clad samurai. Impressive suits and fantastic rhythms! Here an impression of the group that I found on youtube of the parade near where we were standing..
