This research is linked to reflections on the Folias de Reis in the city of Morrinhos/GO. With the problem raised about this mode, and in what terms and cleavages, late capitalism and modern sociability are presented in/from the festivities of the countryside and the city, presented as a general objective to understand the possible differences, coincidences and determinations in the ritual, in the performance of the folios and their ritual, considering late modernity and modern sociability as influenced by the (dis)continuity and transformation of tradition. That said, an ethnographic survey of city and country leaves will be carried out, and their common, discrepant and convergent rites/acts will be verified. With the need to also capture unique markers of the performances of the festivities, the countryside and the city, in order to understand the countryside and the city as transformers of an invented tradition. The intention is still to document the founding symbolism existing in the ritual of the festivities and its imbrications in the tradition invented in the countryside and in the city and its possible variants, in the municipality of Morrinhos/GO. We will use Raymond Williams' theories that will demonstrate the relationships we need, with the purpose of understanding how late capitalism and modern sociability, theories brought by João Emanuel Cardoso de Melo, the object of this research, form a line of meaning. Here we will research the Folias de Reis, the rituals, the ambience, and to do so we will use, to illuminate this research, the concepts brought about culture by Peter Burke and his load of meaning on the breadth of the theme; Cultural Circularity by Mikhail Bakhtin; Representation, by Roger Chartier; Identity, by Stuart Hall; Memory, by Boaventura de Souza Santos; Invented Tradition, by Eric Hobsbawm. The methodology used was qualitative research, at an exploratory level. Derived from an ethnographic method, of an interdisciplinary nature, of a bibliographic nature, with field research, in which 59 festivities were visited, whose focus is on the social relations between devotion, the agents (devotees) and all the communities that receive the festivities described in order to highlight a dynamic scenario between Country and City and their divisions, always seeking to achieve maximum security from a visual point of view, and to frame what was seen in theories, taking into account the strength of the festivities of the festivities in Morrinhos/Go.
