    Sao Joao party at Vale do Festejar

    The big party is in july, every night there are many performances, and in the end of the show they always invite you to dance on the stage and you can really feel part of our traditions! We had lots of fun this last july, and the party for the next year promisses even more fun!!!

    So when you think about travelling to Brazil and you are free on July, do not hesitate to visit MARANHÃO!

    VALE FESTEJAR: FESTA DE SÃO JOAO

    Me, Rafa and Taryana at Vale do Festejar

    It happens every june and july not only in São Luis but in all over the State of Maranhão. Thisis somethin that we do every year, and of course I am always there dancing and playing the BUMBA MEU BOI FOLKS DANCE. It is a very old tradition of our people, and we promote a very colouful feast where the whole population takes part. The whole dances and performances tell a legend of a BULL and its OWNERS, and many different groups from different cities make a sort of a dancing competition.

    IT IS A VERY BIG EVENT IN SÃO LUIS and the biggest part is held at VALE DO FESTEJAR, a very old conventry that during the year becomes a very important cultural centre, but it is also place for the main feasts of the State.

    This Coventry is called CONVENTO DAS MERCÊS

    That is the big entrance of the Conventry where the BULL is the main character!

    This year Rafael was there and our friend Taryana joined us!

    When you think of coming to São Luís, you should remember to see a great typicaldance that often happens on fridays at night:TAMBOR DE CRIOULA!!!

    Just like I said, when you listen to this rhythm at the first time you will be involved and will be invited to join with us this great moment!

    Tambor de crioula is a way that people that lived here 200 years ago found to celebrate São Benedito, and this celebration happens until today, showing us that people from this fantastic place are proud to be born here and want to preserve the culture!And you will love it!I promisse you!

    If you think ina typical friday night in São Lís, you really have to be introduced to this unexpected side of our culture!And I will be glad to show you!Be my guest!
