    These pictures give me saudades for nightlife in Bahia. In no other place have I felt such joy in life, such wonderful energy, and a love for music. The crowd of people dancing and smiling just takes me back!

    Este é um lugar que eu amo, quintal da minha casa, música da minha alma, e vocês conseguiram registrar esse momento de um jeito muito bonito.
