Dancing to the Beats of Different Drummers
This chapter examines how young Afro-Brazilian drummers of the blocos afro in Salvador have taken the art of sacred drumming into contemporary popular music production in Brazil. It discusses the involvement of young musicians in the “let’s make noise” philosophy as part of the Negritude black-consciousness movement in their communities. The chapter also explores the sacred/secular connections of social movements and highlights the continuing enthusiasm of blocos afro for drumming that continued to influence the “secular impulses” of audiences.
