Bahian Culture and Police of Salvador, Bahia

Police of course are people and carry within them their own sense of personal and corporate responsibility, for better or for worse.

They also carry within them the culture in which they were born and raised, and to utilize a saying common in Bahia, what is presented in the two videos below só se ver na Bahia…you only see in Bahia!

This is afoxé, the utilization of dance/musical elements of candomblé outside of a house of candomblé.

The song is Brilho Latente (Latent Shine), written by Bobôco, percussionist of a band which saw some success in Salvador in the ’80s, Laranja Mecância.
