praia do forfe

by ramanatan

hi, im travelling with my family next week to this place and i need some information and recommendations, please write to teregreve@hotmail.com from Chile if you've been there in Brazil! thanks

Re: praia do forfe

by bahiana77

What kind of information and recommendations?

Mine would be to make sure you spend a few days staying in Salvador itself to see this unique city and all its attractions. Check the site www.bahia-online.net for info on culture, music, sights and more. In Praia do Forte, you are rather isolated in a pretty little tourist village 2 hours north of the city to enjoy the beach resort part of your vacation.

Travel Tips for Salvador da Bahia

Berimbau-Musical Bow of African Origin

by mircaskirca

The Brazilian berimbau is a single-string percussion instrument, braced musical bow or African origin. It consists of a wooden bow (traditionally made from biribi wood) about 1,2 - 1,5 m long, with a steel string tightly strung and segured from one end of a bow to the other. Beside its close assotiation with capoeira, the berimbau has long been used in a variety of Brazilian folk and popular music forms, such as samba de roda, carimbo, bossa nova, afro-samba, tropicalsimo, and it's part of Candomble tradition.

In the 1960's, the berimbau began to be heard internationally. Brazilian guitarist Baden Powel brought the berimbau to the attention of the musicians outside Brazil in afro-samba song Berimbau (with lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes). Since 1970 several expatriate Brazilian percussionists (as Nana Vasconselos, Airto Moreira and others) have played berimbau with modern jazz musicians worldwide.

The berimbau has become somehow emblematic of Brazilian popular culture and especially of Salvador.

Take a Trip to Mangue Seco

by Zarasher

You can get to Mangue Seco from getting a boat at Pontal.

To get to Pontal you need to get on the Linha Verde (Green Line, the road that leads up to Pontal, the first ecological highway of the country, planned to prevent any impacts against the still virgin nature of the region. This ecological road binds the Bahia to the Sergipe.) We reached Pontal in about 3 hours by private car. you can also get the Linha Verde Express from The Rodoviaria to Indiaroba (26 reias) and then get a cab from there to Pontal (40 Reias)

Mangue Seco is where the film written by the great Jorge Amado was set, Tieta do Agreste.

It is peaceful, but at the same time has more of a community feel, than say... Morro.

To while away time you can lounge on the beach, sand board, or ride the fabulous sand dunes on the numerous sand buggies.

check out my Mangue Seco page for more details...

"Terca de Bencao" in Pelourinho

by abmukam about "Tereza Batista" square

Live music in Salvador da Bahia on Tuesday means Pelourinho. Mainly Teresa Batista square, where Olodum use to perform. Small but powerful place with the right mixture between tourists and locals. Get there at 9pm. Dress casual

One time in your trip have to try a churrasco: the meat are cooked on the grill on a big ‘churrasco’ (spit), the waiter arrive at the table with the churrasco and explain the type of meat, so you can choose to take a piece or not, afert arrive another weiter so.....you can eat all you want since you put a red button on your plate.
