A group that dresses in the same costume that forms a block in the carnival parade.
A group within a Samba School. Some of these are 'compulsory' in a Rio carnival parade. All the members of an Ala wear the same costume, giving the blocks of colour which characterise a samba school parade. Some alas are traditional or compulsory (ala Baiana, ala Mirim, ala Xingu/Indios). Others are created within particular Samba Schools and given a name which relates to the person who started it or relates to a particular event. These carry on from year to year with the same name. For example, Paraiso created the Ala Penta to celebrate Brazil's 2002 achievement in winning the World Cup for the 5th time. The Ala Penta will now always be part of Paraiso's carnival parade. It may not have 5 members as it did in 2002, but it will always be there.
