Itapocu

Itapocu documents a Quilombola community, a hinterland settlement formed by descendants of Afro-Brazilian slaves who escaped from slave plantations, located in South Brazil’s countryside. Its centenary tradition, Catumbi, is a syncretic manifestation that includes dance, music and other Afro-Brazilian customs.
