While many traditional bailes funk ('funk balls') have been prohibited in Rio’s favelas, there has been a surge in the number of parties attended by upper-middle class youth in these communities. Tickets to exclusive parties in favelas can cost over $25, and the high price prevents local residents from attending the events. Observe the interaction between favela residents and the people who attend these parties from a local bar on the tourist route.
