Goddess of Carnival
Quiteria Chagas is the next Drum Queen we will be presenting in our 2009 Brazil Carnival Special Drum Queen series. Quitéria was born in September 5th, 1980 in Rio de Brazil ´s traditional Tijuca neighborhood. The Carnival muse
from Império Serrano Samba School
is professional dancer and has recently been seen in TV shows. Quitéria works out every day so she can keep up with the duties of Carnival Queen of Drums, including weight-lifting, jogging and dancing of course. She also has constant cosmetic and aesthetics routines.
Before parading, her samba recipe includes the exotic & energetic fruit Açai mixed with granola. In an interview, Quiteria Chagas
appoints “Aquarela Brasileira" as her favorite Samba-Theme ( “Samba –Enredo ) played originally at the 1964 Carnival Parade by Império Serrano and re-edited at the 2004 carnival parade
. The 28 years old Brazilian beauty thinks the Drum Queen post sparkles imagination of men, especially their desire. Finally, when asked to name a Drum Queen role-model, Quiteria Chagas quickly reminds of former Viradouro Samba School<
Queen Patricia Costa.

Goddess of Carnival Quiteria Chagas
Bio: From all of the Drum Queen we are describing in this 2009 Brazil Carnival series, Quitéria is probably one of the 12 muses with the greatest carnival intimacy. This is also due to the fact her parents Eliane and Chagas met themselves in a Carnival ball 33 years ago! She says she is a living proof that Brazilian Carnival can lead into true love, and not just lust or desire. As a carnival kid, this Brazilian model loved to dress as native Indian and odalisque. Quiteria muse had her first chance as a true Carnival Queen of Drums with Aguia de Ouro Samba School. In 2007 and 2008 the samba muse also paraded for Imperio Serrano Samba School
in the disputed Carnival Queen Post. Lastly, Quiteria reveals us a beauty secret: she scrubs her body with sugar crystals every week and her face with Carrot juice.
