Along with trends from cities across the country, Salvador is having a pre-Carnival street party open to the public.
For the first time ever, the enormous music trucks - called trios elétricos - will hit the streets on February 8th without the traditional separation cordon that keeps those who pay and wear the abadá (a t-shirt that symbolizes a ticket) from the rest.
There will be a mix of attractions on the ground, such as the percussion group Quebales and the giant dolls made by the Mamulengo group, alongside minitrucks carrying popular singers like Armandinho and Banda Eva.
Street Carnival has become increasingly popular in the capital of the state of Bahia as a result of the decline of the enormous music truck formations.
In addition to pre-Carnival parties, other initiatives like Furdunço (comprised of free, small attractions on minitrucks) and the Maneca Ferreira circuit (with 28 truckless music groups), will allow more opportunities for the funseeker to save their money.
Artists as varied as Luiz Caldas, Moraes Moreira, Psirico, Armandinho, Baby do Brasil, Banda Eva, Ara Ketu e Carlinhos Brown will be attractions at the free street party, throughout the seven days of the event.
The pre-Carnival party as well as Carnival itself should attract 700 thousand tourists to Salvador.
