A Brazilian festival of Indian and Chinese color will begin in the state of Bahia on March 16, 2017, according to the state’s tourism department.
The state’s Department of Tourism, Culture and Sports said in a statement that the festival will take place in Bahia, the largest state in South America, and will be attended by over 4,000 people.
It will be the state state’s largest Indian color festival, with over 20,000 participants from more than 40 countries.
The Bahia festival is the first of its kind in Brazil, and the first to feature indigenous artists, who are also expected to perform in traditional dress.
The state’s Indian and Asian colors, which are considered indigenous colors, have been on a downward trend in recent years.
