There are numerological universal energies that affect the whole world. They provide an incentive for certain types of events and circumstances to occur. ”
And it is with this numerological energy of the year 2020, that we announce the edition Raízes (roots), which comes to overflow all the culture generated, exchanged and worshiped by Portuguese-speaking countries.
It is well known that this is the main theme of the festival and that every year we try to put even more emphasis on the culture of these countries: Brazil, our base, the colonised African countries and of course, Portugal, the responsible for the outcome of this movement.
What has colonisation brought us besides the language? What are the traits and characteristics of this fusion? What do we have in common between Brazilian, Portuguese and African music? How did these cultural roots occur within this context of colonisation? How to present the bright side of these “discoveries”?
Yes, my friends, we want to talk about black people, Indians and Portuguese people, addressing the artistic theme and also some of the historical consequences generated by the colonisation. We will bring an intense and consistent musical selection, a series of workshops and conversations that remind us of this extremely important subject, that we are part of it as a whole.
Too many stories to tell!
Are you ready?
