As a Brazilian, I bring to light the cultural richness of my country through Bumba Meu Boi, a folk manifestation deeply rooted in our identity. This choice is not only a celebration of Brazilian cultural diversity but also a personal tribute to the Northeast of the country, where part of my family resides.

Bumba Meu Boi transcends the status of a simple festivity to become a representative symbol of the unique fusion of indigenous, African, and European traditions that form the cultural tapestry of Brazil. Its engaging narrative, marked by the symbolic death and resurrection of the ox, mirrors the resilience of the Brazilian people in the face of challenges and the ability to transform adversities into celebration.

The explosion of intricate textures, vibrant colors, and exuberant forms of costumes and masks reveals a true work of art in motion. This symbol not only visually enchants with its colorful attire and masks but also resonates emotionally, conveying values such as solidarity, overcoming, and joy through the symbolic richness present in every visual detail.

The textures, when explored and appreciated, tell stories of ancient traditions and the craftsmanship mastery passed down from generation to generation. The variety of colors plays a fundamental role in this celebration, reflecting our diversity. The vibrant and bold tones that characterize the costumes, masks, and accessories transport observers to a world of joy and festivity.
