Greetings T. Henry,
Yes, Rasta is growing in Brasil. Eventhough not like a fashion, beeing something spontaneus to the new generation; Particularly among the capoeira groups.
Still people don't know a lot about rasta roots and culture, unless what they got to translate from reggae musics.
It's very difficult to find material to read about rasta here, unless you have access to the Internet and can speak english, wich reduces this possibilities to a very few. I consider myself blessed for having both: English and Internet, and so I can pass the informations I get translating to portuguese, or in informal talkings.
I live in Recife, wich is close to Salvador. Next week is starting Carnival in Brasil. Lot's of fun comming. There's going to be a music summer festival and Big Mountain is playing with some Brasilian reggae bands on the reggae night. Some Brethrens went by bike to that.
Give thanks for the board!
Ras Mandingo, Brasil.
