    Once a year Sao Luis, the state capital of Maranhao, stages a festival dedicated to the established Brazilian folk tradition of Bumba Meu-Boi, (wack-the-Ox) a popular folk tale reenacted through Brazilian dance.

    If you are not fortunate to attend the Bumba Meu-Boi Festivle which is usually held in June/July then visiting the museum is the next best thing. The museum is dedicated to displaying the numerous instruments, costumes, masks, dance groups and the history of Bumba Meu-Boi.
