Synopsis: An inspiring mission to rescue young people from drugs and violence with music

At a time when interest in Brazilian culture has reached an all-time high, and the stories of one person's ability to improve the lives of others has captured so many hearts, this unique book takes readers to the frontlines of a battle raging over control of the nation's poorest areas. Culture Is Our Weapon tells the story of Grupo Cultural AfroReggae, a Rio-based organization employing music and an appreciation for black culture to inspire residents of the favelas, or shantytowns, to resist the drugs that are ruining their neighborhoods. This is an inspiring look at an artistic explosion and the best and worst of Brazilian society.

About the Author: Patrick Neate is the author of four novels. His book Where You're At: Notes from the Frontline of a Hip Hop Planet won the prestigious National Book Critics Circle prize for criticism in the US in 2005.

Caetano Veloso was born in 1942 in Santo Amaro da Purificaao, Bahia, Brazil. He lives in Bahia and Rio de Janeiro.
