Preserving Brazilian Culture

Juliana Zanchett from Brazil

As most countries, Brazil has frequently been influenced by aspects of American culture. Fast food and music are becoming part of Brazilians' lives.

Nowadays we are learning to appreciate our traditional food such as Pão De Queijo, our traditional Brazial cheese bread.

We are making good films which are being watched in the whole world, such as Central Station.

Also, Brazilian musicians are selling more CDs than most American music groups. I think that we are accepting aspects of American culture, but we still love our own culture and we are preserving it.

In Brazil, family and friends get together to enjoy feijoada.


I don't think that this inflluence is really bad, and I'm sure it is not such a big influence; a hamburger could never be more important than feijoada, our Brazilian rice and beans. If that ever happened, I would really be worried.
