Exclusive Shore Event: Bahia de Salvador | Bahian Arts and Festive Lunch

Novelist Jorge Amado, artist Carybé and photographer Pierre Verger formed a formidable triumvirate of outstanding talent and artistic output in Bahia from the 1950s until their passing. All were great friends, and each in his own genre and style documented daily life in Salvador and Bahia, focusing on the wide palette of cultural traditions and ethnic characteristics that form the mosaic that is Bahia, its markets, street scenes and religiosity.

In respect of their importance, each has been honored with a permanent exhibition center celebrating their respective life's works.

We begin our day with a drive to Jorge Amados legendary home in Rio Vermelho where he received so many of the world's literary luminaries as his guests, and has now been converted into an emotive museum of his life and work. It features an exhibition of documents, photographs, books, adaptions and personal objects.

Next we will drive to the 17th century So Diogo fort, at Porto da Barra Beach which houses an interactive audio-visual exhibition of the works of Carybé. He was the master sculptor and painter who used such a wide range of materials and techniques: engravings, sculptures, watercolors, oil and acrylic canvases.

Also at Porto da Barra beach is Santa Maria Fort, home to a permanent interactive digital exhibition highlighting the iconic photographs of Pierre Verger, a French ethnologist, deeply inspired and trusted by Candomblé religious leaders, allowing him unparalleled access to sacred rituals. Like his two friends Amado and Carybé he also documented daily life in Salvador, markets and street scenes, his iconic black and white photos testament to the citys cultural wealth.

After this introduction to Bahian art heritage, we will head to Casa de Tereza restaurant for lunch to finalize our immersion in this exciting culture the best way possible- with an explosion of flavors, fragrances and colors that is the cuisine from Bahia. Tereza has some of the top chefs for regional culinary in Salvador and they love to showcase their culture through food.

Approximate Length: Six hours, 15 minutes

Suggested Attire: Light casual wear with comfortable walking shoes. Hats and sunscreen are recommended. Light walking.
