Tour description

I’ll show you around the Saúde neighborhood (Little Africa) and teach you about its complex history. The area is really rich in cultural diversity and this has had a huge impact on musical traditions. Incorporating elements from African music was one of the key elements in developing the world-famous rhythm of Samba music. While we explore, I’ll tell you the fascinating story of how an entire genre was created in this one tiny part of the city. You’ll learn just how it grew to be an essential part of Brazil’s culture.The last stop will be at Pedra do Sal - Salt Stone, with a local outdoor live music of Samba. It´s our authentic local experience that happens every monday and friday.
