Description - Maracatu Atomico by Philip Galinksy

This work investigates the mangue movement - one of Brazil's most vital pop culture trends of the last thirty years and its related music scene, the so-called New Music scene of Recife. Contending with the widespread poverty and social problems of Recife, mangue places a renewed value on the local environment and its myriad folk traditions while embracing modern, global pop influences and technology. The main purpose of ' Maracatu Atomico ' is to understand how local and global elements interact in mangue in the formation of a fluid new cultural identity that reimagines Recife's place in the world.
