how it works
Our evening’s entertainment and dinner will be in the Coliseu Restaurant, offering a buffet of the best in local and international cuisine to suit a wide variety of tastes including the signature Bahian dish the moqueca. Tables are located around the central stage where the evening’s entertainment is presented, beginning with the sacred dances of the Candomblé orixás or deities in their full ritual costumes, then puxada de rede performed by fishermen in honour of Yemanjá, the goddess of the sea, followed maculelê, an acrobatic stick and sword dance from the cane fields. The highlight of the show is an exhilarating display of capoeira, the stunning martial art/dance of Angolan origin. The show ends with the samba de roda, a spinning, swirling version of this exuberant national dance.
