A Journey through Bahia, Amazon and Rio

11-25 November 2023

Brazil often seems isolated in its own vastness, a world apart with apparently little connection to or interest in its seven Spanish-speaking neighbours. Cut off by language (Portuguese), culture and especially race, Brazil is proud of its diversity, from its native indigenous population and early Portuguese conquerors, to later waves of Italians, Germans, Spanish, Ukrainians, Polish, Arabs and Japanese migrants. In stark contrast to its neighbours it also has a relatively large African population – a legacy of slavery, which was legal here right up until 1888. As a result, Brazil is home to the most varied and dynamic artistic movements on the continent, with Carnival the biggest party season anywhere and a bewildering range of musical styles, festivals and celebrations in evidence all year round.
