African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil

Chapter 3 describes Salvador's major public festivals and emphasizes the cultural contribution of the city's largely African-Bahian working class and its Candomblé community. This group used the festivals to shape the wider acceptance of African-Bahian practices (practices such as Candomblé, samba, and capoeira) and created pressure that was central to the ideological reevaluation of those practices after 1930. This chapter also contributes to knowledge about the festivals, on which there is very little scholarship for the period 1930 to 1980.

Keywords:   Festivals, Candomblé, Samba, Capoeira
