Ivete Sangalo is one of the most famous singers & songwriters from Bahia. Before her solo career she released six albums with Banda Eva. Here she performed with Seu Jorge at Madison Square Garden in New York, one of my favorite performances:
Ivete singing Obrigado Axé at the carnival in Salvador, the world’s biggest Carnival. It is much more participatory than the carnival in Rio. Also different to Rio where they play more samba is that in Salvador’s carnival they play more African-based Axé.
