We caught Olodum on the streets of the Pelourinho. Being from New Orleans, it reminded us very much of home - street musicians sharing their gifts with visitors to the city. We purchased their CD that day, and it's been in our player ever since.

Fantastic show and music. It was a bit too loud for me and my boys. I wished I'd had ear plugs so we could have stayed longer, but it was fantastic drumming.

I tavelled solo so I found this flyer on the counter of the hotel. It cost 80 reales, this inlcuded transport and ticket for the show.
It is outdoors in Pelirinho city. Lots of security, the show lasted 3 hours, not only percusion but many other singers were invited. You have the opportunity to listen and dance bahiana and samba music! You can follow the coreography of the crowd. Great fun. You cant find food there but lots of drinks and have a great time!!!

We liked the vibe of the music, but be attentive. My friend got his watch stolen, ripped off his arm. Lots of drinking (we attended a free concert in the square). Not many tourists, mostly locals, so be careful (don't bring anything of value - no watches, jewellery, wallets, cameras....)
