What’s up guys!
What about learningย a little more about Brazilian people?

Today we’ll talk about the Sertanejo.

Sertanejo is the person who lives inย the countryside, mainly at the chapadasย and caatingaย of Brazil, most of them in the Northeast of Brazil. Sertanejos are admirable, because they face a hard life at sertรฃo (the Backlands)ย and have a very simple life raising some oxes and cows and planting something specific for him and his family.

What really represents a sertanejo is a man on a horse, with a big knife on his waist, a leather hat, a gibรฃoย (leather jacket) and also a capanga. This kind of character inspired important names of the Brazilian literature such as Guimarรฃes Rosa, Euclides da Cunha and Graciliano Ramos.

The Sertanejoย is kind, hospitable, likes to party, and has a heart full of hope. Heย is determined , religious, courageous and at the same time full of superstitions .

Because of the difficult life in the sertรฃo, many country people decide to move to other regions of Brazil to start a new life. Here in the Rio de Janeiroย it’s possible to see the sertanejo culture at theย Feira de Sรฃo Cristรณvรฃo. A great place to find food and music typical of these people.

Now, we have learned a little bit more about the diversity of the Brazilian identity. What about your country? Are there any people like the Sertanejo?

Till next time friends!
