(p.160) Conclusions
The Berimbau

Eric A. Galm

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter connects several strands of history, cultural studies, music, and the multiple diasporic presences within the black Atlantic, analyzing the threads of a rich tapestry of Brazilian music and culture to demonstrate how the berimbau has become a symbol of Brazilian identity and an icon of brasilidade throughout the world. It presents a comprehensive portrait of the use and meaning of the berimbau in Brazilian music and culture by investigating how its position has been constructed, modified, and adapted by culture producers, both Eurocentric and Afro-Brazilian, marginalized and elite, to construct opposing notions of Brazilianness.

Keywords:   Brazilian music, Brazilian culture, berimbau, brasilidade
