Itapocu documents a Quilombola community, a hinterland settlement formed by descendants of enslaved Afro-Brazilians who were able to escape plantations, located in South Brazil’s countryside. Its centenary tradition, Catumbi, is a syncretic manifestation that includes a procession, dance, music and other customs.
