Project Description

BANTUNAGOJÊJE

———————(Português)

Música da Bahia, feita em Berlim /// From Bahia, made in Berlin
BANTU, NAGÔ e JÊJE são nomes que se referem aos povos que deram origem à cultura afro-brasileira. Enquanto Bantu é uma denominação linguística, Nagô e Jêje eram originalmente denominações culturais e deixaram de ser usados, exceto no contexto da religião afro-brasileira. BANTUNAGOJÊJE é quando o Afrobeat de Fela Kuti encontra o Jazz no centro de Salvador. Mas pode ser Lagos, Luanda ou Basse-Terre.
Projeto criado e produzido por Paulo Cedraz (Salvador da Bahia, Brasil).

Música da Bahia, feita em Berlim /// From Bahia, made in Berlin
BANTU, NAGÔ and JÊJE are names that refer to the peoples who originated Afro-Brazilian culture. While Bantu is a linguistic denomination, Nagô and Jêje were originally cultural denominations, and ceased to be used except but in the context of the Afro-Brazilian religion. BANTUNAGOJÊJE is when Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat meets Jazz in downtown Salvador. But it could be Lagos, Luanda or Basse-Terre.
A project created and produced by Paulo Cedraz (Salvador da Bahia, Brazil).
