Bahia «touches» the world
"To comprehend elements from different origins and to recreate them through amazing combinations, it is one of the main characteristic of the people from Bahia. In the music field, it is allowed to say that this know-how touches the sublime.
The Center for Black Music in Salvador, a partnership recognised as being part of the “Year of France in Brazil” celebrations, must be recognised as an acknowledgement and an encouragement of Bahia’s diverse musical scene ». But also as a boost to go on with this work.
It is how we get the blow that leads the best of our creativity to go beyond the borders, to cancel the distances and to touch a public every time larger. Certainly, the Centre for Black Music is a gift for the inhabitants of Bahia. But its beneficial effects will be shared with the whole world."
