Fodor's Review

Salvador's best-known percussion group gained international fame when it participated in Paul Simon's "Rhythm of the Saints" tour and recordings. It is one of Salvador's most popular Carnival schools.

Casa do Olodum. Olodum, Salvador's best-known percussion group, has its own venue, the Casa do Olodum, and performs live shows around town, often on Tuesdays or Sundays. Rua Gregorio de Matos, 5, Pelourinho, Salvador, 40026–240. 071/3321–5010.

Escola Criativa Olodum. Olodum also has a percussion school for kids, Escola Criativa Olodum, where you can arrange a visit to watch the budding students hard at work. Rua das Laranjeiras 30, Pelourinho, Salvador, 40026–230. 071/3322–8069.
