Brésil l'héritage africain (N° 22437)

From the 15th to the 19th century, of the eleven to fifteen million Africans who crossed the Atlantic in the holds of slave ships, about three and a half million landed in Brazil. It is in this country, where they endeavored to perpetuate their traditions, that they were most numerous. This work shows the kinship of Afro-Brazilian productions and the arts of sub-Saharan Africa by favoring cross-references. In this perspective, the authors, anthropologists, sociologists, ethnomusicologist and art historian, French and Brazilian researchers, explored the material and spiritual data in the light of this heritage. Erwan Dianteill's study focuses on the main Afro-Brazilian religions, Candomblé, Umbanda and Macumba, with their variants and specific codes, while Ismael Pordeus analyzes the ritual sequence of the Olubajé healing cult of Candomblé. The transmission of beliefs is done in particular through the dances, songs and musical instruments that accompany the ceremonies. Xavier Vatin emphasizes its sacred dimension and its African origins. Moments of communion shared with other members, during ceremonies, strengthen the cohesion of the faithful.
