Please join us in this amazing journey to Salvador, Bahia August 5th - 16th, 2017 for the Festa da Boa Morte. Salvador, Bahia is the most African of all the Brazilian cities. The local cuisine, musical traditions, dance forms and Bahia's vibrant arts are all testaments to this permeating African influence.
Festa da Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte is one of the most fascinating festivals in the Africa Diaspora and it is worth a special trip to see it. Organized by the Sisterhood of Good Death, the festival is a celebrated by the descendants of slaves, who praises their liberation with dance and prayer and mix of themes from Candomble and Catholicism.
