Maracatu is a traditional Afro-Brazilian music genre that originated in the state of Pernambuco. It is characterized by the use of large percussion ensembles, including drums, bells, and shakers, as well as call-and-response singing. The music is often associated with religious and cultural celebrations, and has a strong connection to the history of slavery in Brazil. Maracatu has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years, with contemporary artists incorporating elements of the genre into their music.
