Caymmi family runs after the <i>trio elétrico</i>

Tom Cardoso
The trio elétrico - a truck made onto a moving stage - that will do homage to Dorival Caymmi next carnival in Salvador (Bahia) has started the countdown. Although it is very unlikely that old Caymmi should show up (due to health problems), the rest of the family is excited about the whole thing. Their manager, who’s also organizing the party, told that Nana Caymmi will dress up like an odalisque. Dori and Danilo, who usually prefer to keep a low profile, are quite anxious to go on top of the trio. "I must confess that I have never really enjoyed carnival, but I’m very happy to be able to represent my father in such a nice homage", confirms Danilo.
