The Department of Portuguese has the pleasure of inviting all to attend on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, at 6:00 p.m., in room E21-G035 the Cinema in Portuguese activity: “Lusofonia, a (R)Evolução”.
The movie of this cycle is entitled “”Lusofonia, a (R)Evolução”, produced by the Portuguese delegation of the Red Bull Music Academy in 2006. Lusofonia traces the development of a «música lusófona» («lusophone music», Vanspauwen 2010, 59) or «Luso world music» (La Barre 2010), a transnational musical movement bringing together popular and traditional musics of the Portuguese-speaking world and departing mainly from the city of Lisbon. The aim of the film was to document a lusophone musical identity emerging from Portuguese colonisation since the fifteenth century, to give a glimpse of the sound of the Portuguese-speaking world today, to promote the concept of fusion between Portugal, Brazil and the Portuguese-speaking African countries (referred to as PALOP)
