In his classic work Raízes do Brasil (Roots of Brazil), historian Sérgio Buarque de Holanda writes that the Brazilian experience is unique: we constitute a unique, vast and effective effort to transplant European culture in a tropical and sub-tropical region. As a result of our process of civilization, our culture has always valued foreigners, and our art-both tropicalist and anthropophagic-habitually values and devours everything that comes from abroad, recycling it and returning it to the circuit with our own distinctive timber.
