Brazil's samba schools gear up for carnival

Thirteen Brazilian samba schools are preparing for their night-long parade at Rio de Janeiro's spectacular annual carnival on February 19 and 20.

Uniao da Ilha was one of two schools hit by a devastating fire ahead of the carnival last year. Duration: 02:33
