Synopsis

In 1500, in the region of Salvador in Brazil, the first Portuguese settlers landed and built their first colonial city: Salvador de Bahia, known as "the Bay of All Saints". The indigenous tribes were decimated and replaced by African slaves working mainly in mills.

Today, Salvador's African heritage can still be felt in the culture, the music and the arts. Its inhabitants strive to keep this heritage alive and perpetuate the memory of their ancestors.
