Mercadores de Bagdá E-mail
Mercadores de Bagdá is a traditional Bahian Carnival association, founded in 1959, by Nelson Maleiro. Maleiro also invented the character "Gigante de Bagdá" (giant of bhagdad), which paraded on the main float with a lamp and a gong. Bahian carnival enthusiasts insist that the Mercadores de Bagdá invented the most creative floats in the history of Bahian Carnival, such as a whale spoutig water on partiers or a dragon that spat actual fire.
