The Museum of Brazilian Music is a space to promote the richness and diversity of Brazilian music in the heart of the historic center of Salvador, Bahia
A Brazilian soundtrack, MPB is perhaps Brazil's most important contribution to Western culture. In the perfect combination of lyrics and music, it reached very high levels in several genres, with Bahia as the cradle of genres and geniuses, from Dorival Caymmi to João Gilberto, Tom Zé, Gilberto Gil, María Bethânia, Gal Costa, Caetano Veloso and Raul Seixas.
Given the inexistence of a public place that had the role of presenting this universe and celebrating these achievements, in 2006 we began to give the public access to part of what became this collection through the exhibition "Caymmi, Inventor da Bahia". From this initiative, we inaugurated the Museum in Pelourinho, Historical Center of Salvador, in 2009, which allowed us to develop the collection with the intention of drawing a panorama of the rich universe of MPB through songs, signed copies, photos, rare videos, documents, collectibles, rare publications and vinyl records.
Currently, the Museum is located at Rua das Laranjeiras, 28, Pelourinho, but its doors are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
