Alert listener Olivia let me know that there will be a live broadcast of Carnaval in Salvador (the capital of the northeastern state of Bahia) on YouTube starting at 6pm my time, which is 4pm in the eastern US and 21:00 GMT.
The link is featured on YouTube’s front page though whether that’s only the case here or not I don’t know. In case it’s not, just click here.
Anyhow, the Salvador Carnaval is quite different from Rio de Janeiro’s and is (generally) considered to be more traditional as well as having a greater variety of music and dance styles.
In related news, I’m putting the finishing touches on an episode about Carnaval. I should have it read in a 2-3 hours.
