Maguari factory sponsors Maracatu music groups from Nazaré da Mata municipality, known as the State capital of this musical style. Maracatu is Pernambuco State’s particular brand of folk music and culture, interpreted by simple workers who play percussion instruments and tailor brightly-coloured costumes.
The majority of the factory workers and their families are part of these groups, and put on shows in the city centre twice a year. According to the factory owner, Mrs Vasconcelos, “The Maracatu groups are very important to our region, they show our children the diversity of the Brazilian people and they feed the local economy, mainly through tourism”. This initiative helps preserve and propagate Penambuco State’s culture.
