The Bumba Meu Boi cultural complex of the Brazilian state of Maranhao was hailed as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity, during a meeting in Bogota, Colombia, on Wednesday (Dec. 11). The celebration was unanimously acknowledged with honors by the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (Unesco).

"Bumba Meu Boi from Maranhao consists in a cultural complex encompassing a range of styles and a diversity of groups, as it forges an intrinsic link between faith, festivities, and art, based on the devotion to the saints of the festas juninas, the belief in divinities of African origin and in the local cosmogony and legends," Unesco reported.
