The history of Barroco na Bahia started when His Eminence Dom Lucas Moreira Neves invited Hans Bonisch to prepare the Barroco na Bahia project. In 1991, Hans Bonisch founded in Germany the Barroco na Bahia project.  It was Formed  by a Christian group with the objective of revitalizing sacred classical music in Salvador, Brazil, as Dom Lucas Moreira Neves had asked.  Between 1995 and 1996 Hans Bonisch, with the German Government and the Schloss Raesfeld European Center, completed restoration of the old residence of  Dr. Ernesto Filho, which is today the center of the Barroco na Bahia project.
