Culture, art or marketing?

So last Sunday, I decided to exercise on Ipanema beach and came across some interesting culture, art and religion manifestation. In one side there were Amazon indians selling their handmade souveniers. And in the other side there were Harekrishnas singing their mantra and distributing flyers and love! It was incredible how they were all prepared for the event. Costumes, songs, goodies, bargain planning, snecarium, tents, different specialties. I felt I were in a Latin Epcot Center. Indians, Harekrishnas, surfers. Culture, religion, life style. At least, here at the beach, is that all real? Are they the real culture, religion, art or is it the real art of marketing?
And, let's buy!
