This chapter examines the explosion of Rock Bravú, a popular cultural movement that redefined traditional rural/urban relations and thus remapped modern Galician culture in the 1990s. It examines the convergence between the great indie rock explosion of the Galician movida and the strong Galician folk music revival movement developing in the 1980s, mediated by television. Culturally rooted in the local and the national, Bravú asserted a modern Galician cultural identity developing at the intersections of the old and the new, the rural and the urban, and the local and the global (where the new hybrid realities of the rurban and glocal occur).
