Maracatu Estrela do Norte has changed its name, its colours, and its style.
Now called BAQUE DE AXÉ, we represent Nação do Maracatu Porto Rico, from the communidade do Bode, Pina, Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.
At their heart is their place of worship, the terreiro Ilê Axé Oxossi Guangoubira. We are proud to support the culture of Candomblé Nagô, the history of resistance of an African people in a group that can trace its roots back to Palmares, the story of rebellions and the f...ormation and maintenance of a Quilombo, a society of escaped and free African slaves.
Let us support and celebrate roots music, traditions, and the survival of a community under pressure, from poverty, corruption, violence and neglect.
Let us play MARACATU!!
