EXPLORE BAHIA : THE HEART OF AFRO-BRAZILIAN CULTURE
Join us for a journey of Drum, Dance, Ancestral Connection and Creative Expression
Black Arts Retreat BRAZIL begins in the jewel-toned city of Salvador, where African identity and 17th century colonial architecture fuse to create a contemporary epicenter of Arts and Culture. Our Cultural Immersion continues in Cachoeira at the Boa Morte Festival,one of the most important historical and cultural festivities in Brazil. The Boa Morte sisterhood was founded 200 years ago by emancipated black women devoted to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and Traditional Candomblé rites. We will experience the festival and sit down with the sisters. Our sojourn is rounded out with Capoeira,Cooking Lessons, Artist Hangouts and a visit to the Steve Biko Institute.
