Brazil is one of them; an amalgam of primitive and sophisticated, jungle and elegance, beating drums and luscious jazz harmonics -- there's no other place like it in the world. And while Rio, or its fame anyway, tends toward the elegant and sophisticated end of the spectrum, Bahia tends toward the other. Bahia is the land of the drum.
Living the Brazilian way of life active or slow-paced, the effect is wonderfully relaxing. Great nightlife, music, carnival and cuisines to suit all tastes. Low cost of living. Modern shopping malls, up-to-date banking and telecommunication services. Its all for you in Salvador da Bahia.
Bahia is where Brazil began. It was here that Portuguese explorers in 1549 founded a settlement on the peninsula in Todos os Santos Bay, discovered by Amerigo Vespucci in 1501. It was here that slaves from Africa disembarked and brought their culture to the new world. It was here the Portuguese, African and indigenous cultures met, melded and produced the vibrant music, food, customs and religion typical of Bahia. Bahia is the largest and most populated State in Brazilian Northeast. Bahia is the State with the largest black community, and where black traditions are stronger.
As the first capital of Brazil, from 1549 to 1763, Salvador de Bahia witnessed the blending of European, African and Amerindian cultures. It was also the first slave market in the New World, with slaves arriving in 1558 to work on the sugar plantations. The city has managed to preserve many outstanding examples of Renaissance architecture and is recognized as a UNESCO Heritage site. Bahia's unofficial religion is music. World musicians from Angélique Kidjo to Elvis Crespo to Björk come here to incorporate the sounds of axé or pagoda, and famous sons include the Dylan-esque Gilberto Gil, now the country's Culture minister, and his sixties recording partner Caetano Veloso.
