This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on axé music and the African origins of Brazilian popular music. It explains that axé music and the African roots of Brazilian popular music are embedded in a sacred/secular connection of religion, individual artists, Carnival organizations, music, musical instruments, drumming, dance, imagery, symbols, festive celebrations, and the richness of Afro-Brazilian culture. The chapter also highlights the role of West African àsé in Afro-Brazilians’ struggle for racial equality and economic opportunity.

Keywords:   axé music, Brazilian popular music, Carnival organizations, drumming, Afro-Brazilian culture, West African àsé, racial equality, economic opportunity
