Barrier of people in front of the soundtruck of Bloco Simpatia é Quase Amor. The Bloco Queen also appears in this scene.
These days the large blocos have a sound truck, where the singers and a few others known to the organizers, or friends of friends can hop on for the ride. A few years ago there was no truck, people would follow the drummers and sing along.
During the carnival period, the smaller blocos still do it the old style.
Each bloco has its own Queen that carries dancing samba in front of it as the drummers play on the back.
