Wonderful news. IPHAN, the Brazilian’s goverment body responsible for the cultural heritage of the nation, has just listed the bumba-meu-boi festival from Maranhão as cultural heritage of the nation. Those reading this blog from its very beginnings are probably aware of how fond we are of the bumba-meu-boi. In our humble opinion, it is probably the most remarkable and authentic Brazilian festival. As bewildering as it is largely unknown.

Our blog post bumba-meu-boi contains a handful of information on the festival. Make sure you get its dates right: the final 10 days of June.
