"Bahia de Todas as Contas" as written by and Gilberto Gil Moreira....
Rompeu-se a guia de todos os santos
Foi Bahia
Pra todos os cantos
Foi Bahia

Pra cada canto uma conta
Pra nação de ponta a ponta
O sentimento bateu
(Ai, bateu)

Daquela terra provinha
Tudo que esse povo tinha
De mais puro, de mais seu

Hoje já ninguém duvida
Está na alma
Está na vida
Está na boca do país

É o gosto da comida
É a praça colorida
É assim porque Deus quis

Olorum se mexeu
Rompeu-se a guia de todos os santos
Foi Bahia
Pra todos os cantos
Foi Bahia

Pra cada canto uma conta
Pra cada santo uma mata
Uma estrela, um rio, um mar

E onde quer que houvesse gente
Brotavam como sementes
As contas desse colar

Hoje a raça está formada
Nossa aventura plantada
Nossa cultura é raiz

É ternura nossa folha
É doçura nossa fruta
É assim porque Deus quis

TRANSLATION:

The guide of all saints broke
It was Bahia
To all corners/niche (“canto” can also mean a song; double meaning)
It was Bahia

For each corner/niche a story
For nations of point to point
The feeling hit
Oh, it hit

From that little taste of the land
Everything that these people had
Very pure, very theirs

Today nobody doubts
It's in the soul
It's in the life
It's in the mouth of the country

It's the taste of the food
It's the colorful plaza
It's like this because God willed it so

Olorum (a religious deity) stirred
The guide of all saints broke
It was Bahia
For all the corners
It was Bahia

For every corner/niche a story
For every saint a forest
A star, a river, an ocean

And where He wants there to be people
They sprout like seeds
The stories of this necklace

Today the race is graduated
Our adventure is planted
Our culture is our roots

It's the tenderness of our leaf
It's the sweetness of our fruit
It's like this because God willed it so
