Salvador de Bahia's Olodum Drums

The Historic Centre of Salvador de Bahia, frequently called the Pelourinho, is extremely rich in historical monuments dating from the 17th through the 19th centuries. Bahia was the first colonial capital of Brazil and the city is one of the oldest in the New World (founded in 1549 by Portuguese settlers). It was also the first slave market on the continent, with slaves arriving to work on the sugar plantations.

The Olodum drum band here helps young people find a purpose in spite of poverty and crime.

Unesco declared Salvador de Bahia a World Heritage Site.
