Axé Bahia : the power of art in an Afro-Brazilian metropolis( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axe Bahia' examines the unique cultural role played by Salvador, the coastal capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia. An internationally renowned center of Afro-Brazilian culture, Salvador has been a vibrant and important hub of African-inspired artistic practices in Latin America since the 1940s. This volume represents the most comprehensive investigation in the United States of Bahian arts to date and features essays by eighteen international scholars. While adding to popular understandings of core expressions of African heritage, such as the religion Candomble, the essays explore in depth the complexities of race and cultural affiliation in Brazil and the provocative ways in which artists have experienced and responded creatively to prevailing realities of Afro-Brazilian identity in Bahia. Lavishly illustrated, the book features works by artists ranging from modernists, among them Mario Cravo Neto, Rubem Valentim, and Pierre Verger, to contemporary artists Rommulo Vieira Conceicao, Caetano Dias, Helen Salomao, Ayrson Heraclito, and others-including a stunning array of sculpture, painting, photography, video, and installation art. The exhibition was part of the Getty's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.00Exhibition: Fowler Museum at UCLA, Los Angeles, USA (24.09.2017?15.04.2018)

Divining slavery and freedom : the story of Domingos Sodré, an African priest in nineteenth-century Brazil by João José Reis( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its original publication in Portuguese in 2008, this first English translation of 'Divining Slavery' has been extensively revised and updated, complete with new primary sources and a new bibliography. It tells the story of Domingos Sodre, an African-born priest who was enslaved in Bahia, Brazil in the nineteenth century. After obtaining his freedom, Sodre became a slave owner himself, and in 1862 was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen goods from slaves in exchange for supposed 'witchcraft'. Using this incident as a catalyst, the book discusses African religion and its place in a slave society, analyzing its double role as a refuge for blacks as well as a bridge between classes and ethnic groups (such as whites who attended African rituals and sought help from African diviners and medicine men). Ultimately, 'Divining Slavery' explores the fluidity and relativity of conditions such as slavery and freedom, African and local religions, personal and collective experience and identities in the lives of Africans in the Brazilian diaspora.0Translated by H.

Memórias afro-atlânticas : as gravações de Lorenzo Turner na Bahia em 1940 e 41 by Xavier Vatin( Recording )

1 edition published in 2018 in Portuguese and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Afro-Atlantic Legacies is the product of research conducted at Indiana University in 2012 and 2013 with funding from the Brazilian Ministry of Education's CAPES Foundation. Its primary objective is to give back to the religious communities involved the sound and photo archives collected by the African American linguist Lorenzo Turner in Bahia in 1940 and 1941. This double CD aims to show Brazil a previously unknown side of the work of that Black Atlantic pioneer after 77 years, retrieving an edited and commented selection of songs, prayers, and stories sung and recounted by Martiniano do Bonfim, Menininha do Gantois, Joãozinho da Goméia and Manoel Falefá, among other historic figures in Afro-Brazilian culture--illustrious representatives of one of the most beautiful and fascinating African diaspora religions in the Americas: Candomblé."--Page 9
