Let’s investigate Diplo’s story further, shall we?
Fascinating History of Rio Carnival
Rio Carnival is a long-held festival that occurs in the iconic city of Rio de Janeiro. With almost 2 million attendees almost every year, it’s known as one of the biggest carnivals in the world. Often showcased in pop culture as well. Dating back to almost the 1640s, it’s believed that the Rio Carnival took birth as a way to pay homage to Greek wine gods. The god of the grape harvest, Dionysus or Bacchus, was honored at these major Rio festivals. Maybe, Diplo knew of this fascinating history of the Rio Carnival and just wanted to follow the legacy of those that came before him. By drinking joyously without any limitations, things might have taken a crazy turn!
We’re guessing a lot of people, just like Diplo, lay shirtless on random cliffs throughout the Rio de Janeiro area every year in the famous Rio Carnival.
