The CULTURAL CUP is a yearlong program created by CCBU to explore the diversity and richness of the Brazilian culture through a "cultural tour" of the twelve Brazilian Host Cities of the 2014 Football World Cup. Each month, in partnership with the Miami Dade County Public Library System we present one these cities’ special characteristics, culture, history, music and art.

The COPA CULTURAL tour continues in
SALVADOR!

Saturday, Oct 20, from 11a.m. to 2pm
at the Key Biscayne Library
299 Crandon Boulevard, Key Biscayne, FL 33149

Due to its easygoing population and countless outdoor parties SALVADOR is known as the "land of happiness". With its warm climate, perfect balance of ocean, rainforest and stunning cultural diversity Salvador da Bahia is a city that offers visitors an unforgettable authentic and exotic experience.

The city is known as the African soul of Brazil. Here the descendants of African slaves have preserved their cultural roots more than anywhere else in the New World, transforming them into thriving culinary, religious, musical, dance and martial arts traditions.

In Salvador you can bump into a capoeira circle (a martial art developed by the slaves of Bahia) or a drum corps pounding out samba reggae, you can munch acarajé (bean dumplings fried in dendê oil filled with dried shrimp, spiced manioc paste and sauces, which is still sold on the streets of Nigeria) and witness a Candomblé festival.

Join us as we explore the lush and tropical city of SALVADOR DA BAHIA, one of the twelve host cities of the football tournament. Taste the typical  treats prepared by the native of Salvador, Carlinhos Encarnação; learn about the history and the rich culture of this fascinating city as we dress a manequin with the typical Bahia costume. This is a fun and enriching program for all ages.

PROGRAM COPA CULTURAL: SALVADOR

11am – 11:30am:  AXÉ! (the Bahia salutation)– Welcome and tasting of typical Bahia food from Carlinhos Encarnação’s "tabuleiro" (tray) who will tell us about the secrets and traditions of the food from Bahia.
11:30am – 11:45am:  INTRODUCTION to Salvador. Video, casual presentation in a storytelling format.
11:45am -  12:30pm:  DRESS the "BAIANA". The typical white lace costume of the women street vendors and candomblé (Afro-Brazilian religion) priestesses has a lot of layers and accessories. The participants will help Carlinhos Encarnação as he dresses "Jessica", CCBU’s mannequin in traditional Baiana costume and explains the meaning of each of the parts of the traditional dress.
12:45pm – 2pm: Screening of the documentary "A BAHIA DO AFOXÉ FILHOS DE GHANDY" Produced by S12 Produções Brazil. Directed by Lino de Almeida in 52 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles. This fascinating documentary presents the Afoxé Filhos de Ghandi, a group that takes to the streets of Salvador with more than 14,000 people during Carnaval and has become the most popular and respected group of preservation and dissemination of Afro-Brazilian culture in Bahia.
