An Introduction to the Music and Dance of Bahia Oct 20, 2006
If you go to Salvador, Bale Folclorico da Bahia is a must. It is an excellent introduction to the culture, dance, and music of Bahia. The dance company has toured internationally and recieved much deserved rave reviews. The performances are Monday through Saturday at 8pm at Teatro Miguel Santana in Pelourinho. There are no shows on Tuesdays, probably because of Bencao- Pelourinho's Tuesday night celebration.
The simple theater is brought to life by the spectacular show. You will see and hear a wide variety of Bahian folk dance and music from all over the state- capoeira, candomble drumming and dancing, samba de roda and more. The repertory ranges from beautiful to exciting and sometimes requires audience involvement. It is never overdone and it is classy, authentic and polished.
The show was $R20 when I first saw it but when I was leaving, the price had been raised to $R25. There may be half-priced tickets available for students. Tickets can be purchased before the show at Teatro Miguel Santana starting at 2pm on weekdays and 4:30pm on Saturdays. Buy tickets in advance, eat dinner in Pelourinho and then enjoy the show!
