A tropical paradise yet steeped in colonial history, Bahia has a special place in the hearts of Brazilians. The capital, Salvador is synonymous with the joy of carnaval and the vibrancy of its african heritage embodied in the candomblé religion and the practice of capoeira.  
Bahia has been a natural birthplace to artists from all walks of life. The novelist Jorge Amado wrote about little else and Bahia remains the spiritual home of many of Brazil's renowned musicians including Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso.
