In a first moment a bibliographic research was developed which aimed to discuss themes like identity, adolescence, youth, modernity, post-modernity, hybrid culture, music and religion. In the second part the analysis and discussion of the field research data with 245 young people from local communities, at the age of 15 up to 25 years old, was accomplished.
