Carnival, " The Greatest Show on Earth"
Carnaval is one of the best-known celebrations today. Carnival is a festival traditionally held in Roman Catholic
Salvador has large Carnival celebrations, including the Axé, typical Bahia music. A truck with giant speakers and a platform where musicians play songs of local genres such as Axé music, Samba-reggae and Arrocha, is driven with the following crowd both dancing and singing. It was originally staged by two Salvador musicians, Dodo & Osmar, in the 1950s. Several cities in the state of Bahia still celebrate Carnaval this way, with as most popular the carnival of Porto Seguro, Ilheus and Itacare.
