If there is a Carnival Drum Queen
in Brazil that could be considered a Brazilian beautiful artist, this is Luma De Oliveira the GGoddess of Carnival
appointed by several critics of Samba
Not only marvelous, but enigmatic and legendary. The recently elected Carnival Drums Queen for Portela Samba School
was born in December 1965.
In the turning of the century, this Brazilian celebrity attracted so much media frenzy she simply couldn´t go to regular restaurant without being noticed and followed by paparazzi. Luma de Oliveira shot Brazilian movies from 1988 to 1997, including 3 comedies. In one of most curious events, ( some say made for the media ), during one carnival parade in Rio, she wore a collar with her husband´s name, enticing Brazilian feminists all around the country. In 2002, Luma donated approximately US$ 15.000 to President Lula´s campaign, creating another high-profile buzz.
