Bahian Independence Day

On July 2, 1823, the forces of the state of Bahia expelled the Portuguese armies to confirm the independence of Brazil. Bahia was the last of the Brazilian states to drive out the Portuguese.

Today in Bahia, baianos commerate this day as the Independence of Bahia and if you are lucky enough to be in Salvador, there will be a roda hosted by FICA-Bahia, N’Zinga, ACANNE, Zimba, and others. Enjoy!
