Culture of Goiania

It is interesting to notice that Goiania, as the capital of a state that was rural until 3 decades ago, has been traditionally influenced by the sertanejo style, strongly connected with the countryside lifestyle. Though the sertanejo is still an icon of Goias' culture, the rock scene is seen by some as a response to it and as the creator center of a goianiense legitimately culture, independent of the countryside culture. Goiania is, now, a leading center in the underground rock movement in Brazil
