      About this Bahia de Salvador tour

      Work up an appetite, then later a sweat. If you've ever wanted to experience the barely contained passion and energy of Brazilian Carnival, this is your chance.

      And "barely" certainly describes the lithe dancers adorned with colorful plumes and bejeweled bikinis, shirtless men juggling machetes over six-pack abs, and the sexy swaying of the samba circle.

      These performances are deeply embedded in Brazilian culture, with roots going back hundreds of years and stretching all the way to Africa. Like the martial-arts styled capoeira, a dance founded in the 16th century indomitable African slaves. And the maculele, a dance that requires the utmost care as dancers leap and duel with deadly machetes. It's reflection of and a defiant response to the daily oppressions and indignities of slavery.

      Of course, no Carnival would be complete without the samba, that lively Brazilian dance full of gyrating and jamming set to pulsing percussion beats. During the show's grand finale, you'll be invited on stage to do some gyrating of your own; it's your chance to experience the unrestrained joy of Brazil's week-long celebration in one unforgettable night.

      Fighting to survive

      The end of slavery in Brazil in 1888 left many without work in a society that had no place for Africans. So those who had mastered the martial arts-style dancing of capoeira found unconventional ways to support themselves, working as bodyguards and hit men for criminals and warlords. They proved good at their jobs, wreaking so much havoc that capoeira was declared illegal until the 1920s.
