the songs you've sung on a braver day

Salutations, comrades.

This is the blog of a mobile fungus colony.

Expect for there to be a focus upon the culture, arts and history of the 20th century.

“Cangaço” is the name given to a form of “social banditry” in the Northeast of Brazil in late 19th and early 20th centuries. This region of Brazil is very dry, often desert-like, and life for the poor was difficult. In reaction to the domination of the rich land owners and the government, many men and women decided to become nomadic bandits, roaming the hinterlands seeking money, food and revenge.
