As you can see from my new city categories (the ones that refer to the cities I’ve written the most about), Salvador da Bahia is high on the list. The more I learn about it, the more I’m intrigued by it and let me tell you, TV FTC of Bahia really doesn’t help in the matter because I love watching their videos on Bahian culture. Sure, I just discovered their Youtube channel and spent a lot of time watching and learning from their videos such as the Salvador Visto Por and Giro series. The former are 15-minute interviews with people important to Salvador talking about their connections with the city and the latter are shorter tours around interesting parts of the capital city.
According to their “about me” section,
“TV FTC is the university-run TV station of the Faculdade de Tecnologia e Ciências de Salvador (College of Technology and Sciences of Salvador). Made up exclusively of employees and interns of the Cinema and Video field of study, the team produces videos that mix culture, information and entertainment, always with Bahia in the spotlight.”
Below is an example of their work and more specifically, of their Salvador Visto Por series.
And by the way, if you are interested in hearing that song mentioned, the first song to be recorded in Brazil, authored by Xisto Bahia…here it is.
