Favelas in Rio

I have been in Brasil for 12 hours or so and I am already yearning to visit a favela. But all the locals tell me that I am crazy.
Last night I was told that Michael Jackson visited one of these favelas. Check this out...I might have a new favorite music video.

The music part of that video was filmed mostly in Bahia (North East of Brazil)and the drumming was performed by OLODUM. Only go to a favela with someone that lives there and that you trust. I personally recommend that in your first trip you stick to the basics...Good luck, Hugo

My friend said the same (about being filmed in Bahia). But they said that the other scenes were shot here this favela close to their home! Thanks for the advice. I will continue the hunt for my favela friend.
