The Recôncavo comes to Pelourinho

Like Birnam Wood bearing music and dance!

Saturday & Sunday, November 26th and 27th, will see the Festival de Cultura Popular in Salvador’s Centro Histórico (the festival actually begins on the evening of Friday, the 25th, at a Mass in the church in the Largo do Pelourinho, which will include members of Cachoeira’s Irmandade da Boa Morte).

There will be charangas (processions) and chula and samba de roda in the Largo do Cruzeiro de São Francisco (off of the Terreiro de Jesus)…

This will be a concentrated manifestation of the true African Soul of Brazil, directly from the place where so much of Brazil in many senses began.

See you there!
