Coming to Salvador seeing black Brazilian culture is a must. This theatre organises a nearly daily show with terrific artists. Need to get there and back by taxi. Buy tickets in advance as it quickly sells out.

The energy of the artists is truly amazing and the variety of songs and dance is incredible and I wished it would go on and on. Do not miss this show.

No one with an interest in Bahian traditions should miss this. An extremely professional show with needle-sharp timing and imaginative choreography. It was also nice to have live musicians---a comparable Cuban show which I once saw in London had only recorded music, which was a...More

Exuberant, energetic, polished, pulsing and haunting performances. Large cast, great percussion, visually stimulated costumes and non-stop, never slow down choreography. A very hard working and talented group which has performed all over the world. Saw them and enjoyed them at GPAC in Germantown TN, a...More

The Bale Folclorico was part of our tour and we were very happy it was included. The show lasts less than one hour in a very small theater. The seats are just benches and not that comfortable but since the show is short its not...More

We went to this 1 hour show pre-dinner. I'd seen a similar show at the Edinburgh Festival. Vibrant and energetic dances and finished off with martial arts. well worth an hour of your time. it costs 50 reals.
