Glocalisation, Authenticity and Consumption: a Qualitative Investigation of the Australian Hip Hop Culture

This paper examines the symbolic meanings assigned to brands by the Australian Hip Hop culture. Using an ethnographic methodology the researcher found that the glocalised nature of the Australian Hip Hop culture and the creolised interpretations of meanings influenced members’ consumption habits. In particular the culture’s values of authentically representing one’s self and one’s place were signified through consumption. Implications for marketers are discussed.
