Northeastern Brazilian pop culture


This is a personal project where I illustrate popular cultural themes present throughout Brazil, especially in the Northeast, the place where I come from, and have experienced these expressions throughout my life. I’ve used basic forms, vibrant colors, and textures that align with the simplicity, joy, and spontaneity of the Northeastern people. By order of presentation, the themes are: “forró pé de serra” (a traditional northeastern Brazilian music style); “reisado” (a traditional folk play); “repente” (improvised singing in the Northeastern Brazilian tradition); “coco de embolada” (a style of music and dance with fast-paced lyrics); and “pastoril” (a folk theater performance).
