Santa Teresa

Together with future partners, Julio Batista intends to develop projects that will benefit this exquisite and storied region that has been the home to Sousa Bows.

Recently, through Law 226/2012, Santa Teresa became the state capital of jazz and blues and is also know as the land of hummingbirds, orchids and the most importantly, Augusto Ruschi, who by federal law was granted the title ‘Patron of Ecology in Brazil’.

In addition, the municipality of Santa Teresa is the largest producer of grapes and wine in Espirito Santo, representing 80% of the state’s production.

One such project, vital to the sustainability of the bow industry as well the environment, is the preservation of pernambuco wood. Another equally important project involves investing in the local community and it cultural landscape by helping its underprivileged youth through the establishment of a music school as well as a school of violin making. Somewhat fitting, seeing as this instrument has is origin in the same country as Santa Teresa’s first pioneers back in the nineteenth century.
