Brazil Music Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Salvador de Bahia, and Recife

December 6th-17th, 2023

Brazil is one of the essential musical locations for Latin American music,  playing an important role in the history of music formed in that area. Join us on our immersive Brazil Music Tour, and visit famous musical cities like Rio De Janeiro, Salvador de Bahía, and Recife.  

Home to iconic music styles like Samba, Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz, Choro, and much more, Brazil has a deep history of African drumming styles merged with Western-European music throughout the colonial era until today. An incredible mix that created the melting pot of Brazilian music. 

Let us give you the musician’s perspective on Brazilian Music. Our Brazil Tour is the perfect one to see the music and experience the culture. Including Candomblé parades and ceremonies in Salvador and a visit to a Samba school rehearsal while preparing for Carnaval many months in advance.

Each night will be filled with diverse music experiences, we will hear the sounds of Brazil in small jazz clubs, and even organic Samba Jams at places like Pedra do Sal. We will not only experience the music but also take you on a cultural tour of each city and enjoy some of the best food you can eat in Brazil. Ever been to an authentic Brazilian steak house? Ever had Moqueca or Farofa? This Brazil Music Tour is your chance to experience it all!

Sample itinerary

  • Arrival in Sevilla 
  • We’ll greet you at the airport and give you an introduction to the city sights on the way to the hotel. 
  • You’ll have time to rest and refresh or go for a stroll in the barrio Santa Cruz, whose streets and architecture dating to Roman times are testament to the Islamic, Jewish and Christian cultures that have historically inhabited the city. 
  • We’ll meet in the evening for a welcome dinner at an authentic flamenco tablao, and an informal introduction to the Flamenco Biennial and the week’s activities. 
  • After breakfast at the hotel, we’ll take a walking tour and learn the artistic history of the Triana neighborhood, an incubator of flamenco, traditionally home to Seville’s gypsy population. Special visit to the Centro de la Cerámica de Triana, (Triana Ceramics Center), a ceramics factory founded in 1939 that now houses the Flamenco Biennial Headquarters, in a restored building that is testament to the tradition of ceramic tiles and pottery in Sevilla that dates back to the Middle Ages.
  • Lunch in Triana on the site (as you’ll learn) of a key event in the history of pure flamenco.
  • Toward evening, we’ll attend the Opening Ceremony of the Flamenco Biennial and convene for an informal dinner.
  • After breakfast, we’ll visit the studio of a local artist for a unique demonstration of the different rhythms and an introduction to styles of flamenco. Then we´ll head to a vibrant but hidden away market-side bar loved by locals for some of the best seafood tapas in town. 
  • Look forward to this evening when we´ll attend a concert by one of the Biennial’s renowned headliners. Dinner on your own or with others in the group and the option of taking in a late-night flamenco show will follow.
  • An early morning paddle on Guadalquivir River for a guided tour to the sights from a kayak. Those who prefer to stay on dry land can take a walking tour or enjoy some free time. 
  • After a dance or music workshop with flamenco musicians, we’ll head to one of Sevilla’s newer restaurants for pescaito (little fried fish) and paella.
  • There will be free time to explore and rest before a concert that showcases the strength of the current young generation of flamenco artists.  We can recommend nearby spots for late-night  dinner or drinks on your own or with others in the group after the concert.
  • Breakfast at Hotel, free time
  • We’ll attend the flamenco version of Sunday mass with a concert at a historic cathedral.
  • After the concert, we’ll gather together for a light lunch and say farewell to travelers whose final stop is Sevilla.
  • Those continuing on the trip will leave for  Vejer de la Frontera, Cádiz, one of Andalusia’s famed “pueblos blancos” acclaimed as one of the most beautiful towns in Spain. 
  • We’ll check into Hotel Casa del Califa, whose central building is from 1527, with walls dating back to the Tenth Century. A unique place that feels like you are in a house the ancient Al-Andalus, as the region now called Andalusia was known under Muslim rule.
  • At dusk, we’ll meet our guide, a Vejer native who will take us on a fascinating tour of the Arab and Jewish past of this walled city, highlighting the unique cultural context that led the way to the birth of flamenco.
  • In the evening we’ll have our own flamenco fiesta on the terrace of the house of a flamenco dancer and historian, where they will lead us in dancing and palmas (hand-clapping) and serve a dinner of local specialties.
  • After a special breakfast at the hotel, we’ll head out on a day trip to explore the Cádiz region.
  • First stop Jerez, often known as “the cradle of flamenco,” and also for the sherry wine that bears its name. We will combine those two unique and native creations at a “tabanco,” a kind of neighborhood sherry bar and locals’ hangout found only in Jerez, where we can listen to flamenco while sipping jerez and eating tapas.
  • Then we’ll visit San Fernando, the birthplace of the immortal flamenco icon Camerón de la Isla. 
  • Dinner at El Jardin de Califa in the hotel, where we´ll enjoy a delicious and leisurely Moroccan dinner.
  • After breakfast, you’ll have the option of spending the morning at El Palmar beach, a long stretch of sand on the Atlantic lined with surf shacks, where we can arrange a surfing class, or horseback riding along the shore.
  • We’ll return to Sevilla, where you’ll have a chance to rest or do some last-minute shopping before our farewell dinner.
  • Breakfast at Hotel
  • Transportation to the Sevilla airport for departure (or stay if you like!)
