The event will take place from September 18 to 20 and will be as guest professors Sônia Queiroz (Faculty of Arts of UFMG), Hector Tascón (Music – University of Cauca, Colombia), Professor Diego Fernandez (Samba Preto School) and Josivaldo Pires (History – UFBA). Papers, lectures and artistic performances will be presented. The overall coordination is from Professor Andrea Adour.

The Africanias UFRJ research group proposes to understand the contributions of different African and indigenous peoples in the different genres of Brazilian music through systematic study, with the participation of researchers from different areas and institutions. This presence has been spread since the 16th century, when the economic model adopted by Portugal in its colony used slave labor, submitting the native peoples and the various African peoples brought here, mainly from sub-Saharan Africa.

The term Africania was thus explained out by Yeda Pessoa de Castro:

“It designates the African-African linguistic-cultural legacy […] which has become a participant matrix for the construction of a new cultural and linguistic system that in Brazil identifies itself as Brazilian”.
