Direct from Bahia in northern Brazil comes this irresistible 25-member troupe known for its explosive drumming, frenzied dancing and irrepressible energy. Its display of Bahian folkloric dances of African origin was described as a non-stop extravaganza by the San Francisco Chronicle.
The Brazilian state of Bahia is said to be the most African part of Brazil, a place where otherwise long forgotten gods are still remembered. From Capoerira to Samba de Roda to Afixire dances, Bale Folclorico da Bahia brings thrilling choreography, joyous rhythms, and a feisty, flirtatious exuberance to every performance.
