Travel Tips for Salvador da Bahia

Axe Music

by mircaskirca

By the 1980s Bahia's musical scene had become thoroughly Africanized. The influence of the Filhos de Gandhi, Olodum, Ile Aiye and other blocos inspired a surge in Afro-Brazilian consciousness. Bahian popular music was suddenly full of Yoruba words, Candomble images and references to Africa and Jamaica. And the trios electricos started to present afro-electrico music.

Axe music is not exactly about a style or musical movement, but rather about a useful brand name given to artists from Salvador da Bahia who made music upon northeastern Brazilian, Caribbean and African rhythms with a pop-rock twist, which helped them take over the Brazilian hit parades since 1992. Axe is a ritual greeting used in Candomble and Umbanda (African-Brazilian religions), meaning 'good vibrations'.

Tested within the height of Carnival heat, axe songs have been commercially successful in Brazil throughout the past decade. It was particularly fortunate for the artists Daniela Mercury, Ivete Sangalo, Banda Eva, Chiclete com Banana, Ara Ketu, Banda Beijo, Banda Cheiro de Amor, Asa de Aguia, Terra Samba and E o Tchan.

As axe relished with commercial popularity, several artists were searching for creative alternatives for the music from Bahia. The most significant step was taken by Timbalada, percussion/vocal group led by Carlinhos Brown, whose idea was to rescue the sound of the timbaus (bass drums), long restricted to Candomble rituals. Carlinhos Brown later left Timbalada and started his solo career while Timbalada continued. I have to say that I really admire all his work and projects. He's sooo good... he's just amazing!! You can convince yourself by watching those excellent video clips:

Jazzy ribbons

by andal13

Everywhere you will find these jezzy ribbons that say: Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia (Souvenir of Lord of Good End of Bahia). It is said that if you put this ribbon around your wrist, ask for a wish and never take it off, your wish will come true. I cannot say if it is true or not, because I never did such a thing!

Por todas partes se encuentran estas cintas coloridas que dicen: "Lembrança do Senhor do Bomfim da Bahia" (Recuerdo del Señor del Buen Fin de Bahía). Se dice que si te pones esta cinta en la muñeca, pides un deseo y nunca te la quitas, tu deseo se cumple. No puedo decir si es cierto o no, poruqe nunca lo hice!

Imbassaí - Meeting of Waters

by mircaskirca

Imbassaí is a quiet pretty village, located in Linha Verde's (Green Line) Area of Environmental Protection, 65 km north of Salvador. Sand dunes and the river, which runs parallel to the beach, separate the village from the beach.

The Imbassaí river, also called the Barroso river, creates a diverse environment, shallow and narrow in some places and in others wide and deep. In most places its water is crystal-clear and it's perfect for swimming. It is also worth doing a beautiful and relaxed kayak trip down the river. On the sandbar, where the river meets the ocean, there are a couple of small beach bars where you can enjoy cold drink and delicious fresh.

Imbassaí offers 6 km of deserted beaches fringed with countless coconut palms and sand dunes behind. Whether you walk north of south of Imbassaí, you probably won't meet anybody for miles. A true paradise :)

Clubbing in Salvador de Bahia

by abmukam about Fashion Club

The club scene in Salvador is limited to the small Salvador’s elite. Almost all the clubs offer live music too and only few of them leave djs take over completely of the dance floor. Fashion Club is the classic club in Salvador with a bit of everything. Two floors, big dance floor for a college crowd. Djs stage and live music. Age 18-25. Get there 10pm or queue. Dress up

Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, great service

by sunlovey about Maria Mata Mouro

Named after literature written by the Brazilian Hilda Histh, about a character, Maria Mata Mouro felt pleasure in what she ate. (I think I've got this right, correct me if I'm wrong!) This place is a darling little gem in the heart of Pelourinho... the atmosphere is charming and quaint, the back garden seating area is lush and romantic, the service is attentive but not overbearing... we had a lovely dinner here!

The menu is heavily influenced by Italian cuisine but not entirely...

Ask for the table by the trickling fountain in the back. We had prosecco here... several bottles!

The couvert was deeeelicious.... great breads, flat breads & dips.

We had the matarmouro salad & Carpaccio to start- both were presented well and tasted great.

I had Penne ao Pesto for dinner (the ONLY night I didn't have a moqueca of some sort!!!) and Tim had the Burgundy Filet with risotto. We were impressed with both.

Why is it we NEVER have room for dessert when the offerings sound soo incredibly good!??!?!
