We asked some people who love Salvador what would be a must do in the city during this summer and party time!!!
Among the guests there are producers, cultural agitators, digital influencers and artists. They’ll get you by the hand and take you for a ride that totally fits them.
In this one, the one who takes you to a perfect day in Salvador is Luiz Caldas! He doesn’t need any presentations… But, as we really want to, we will present him! This living legend, the father of Axé Music, sings, composes, plays several instruments, makes incredible arrangements and still produces! In December of 2017, he counted 70 records, with 732 released songs and going beyond 25 million downloads. The recently released album “Grilhões” celebrates the 30th anniversary of Samba Reggae. Wake up early and go out with him!
