Shakira is right, hips don't lie! I grew up loving dance. When you move your hips, you allow yourself to explore your sensuality; you open doors to self-discovery.... By moving their bodies, especially their hips, they were able to connect with a sensual side that they had kept hidden from themselves and others for years. Through the power of movement, negative feelings about their bodies started to disappear.
Under the influence of the many cultures of the immigrants that settled in Brazil, the variety of rhythms and dances that have been born in this country is more than one can count. Starting with the native ritual music that later the Portuguese Jesuits made suitable to their liturgies, to the percussive beats of the Africans, Brazil received many great cultural influences that helped shape it's unique fusion.
Anything with the word passion gets me, and passion fruit I happen to LOOOOVE! Have you seen the flower? Isn't it one the most beautiful nature creations or what? The white flowers, with purple to pink crown blooms, remind me of summers in Brazil.

Whenever I hear the samba groove I can never sit still. Something inside of me starts to spin and I feel the rush of energy in my veins. Samba can communicate happiness and sensuality. It also can articulate my sadness, my passions and my desires.
Well, if you don't know lemon is supposed to be translated as "limão" in portuguese. But the fact is that you will not find yellow lemon very easy in Brazil.
This season we celebrate Bahia with its moqueca recipe. My grandmother and my mom are from this very beautiful and cultural region. This is a stew very typical of Bahia. It can be made with fish or shrimp. It's a delicious and simple dish to prepare. Serve with rice and a tropical salad and you're ready to go! Very Brazilian!
