ANTHOLOGY OF BRAZILIAN INDIAN MUSIC [coll.] – [Ethnic Folkways Library]

aarbor   10/30/2019   A Library

From 1962, these are songs of the indigenous people of Brazil: the Karaja, Javahe, Kraho, Tukuna, Juruna, Suya, Trumai, Shukarramae people are represented here, as recorded by Harald Schultz and Vilma Chiara. This is a classic Folkways ethnomusicology record. The music is probably less interesting and more primitive than the rest of the culture which does seem to revolve around singing dancing. Given the destruction of their habitat in recent years, I wonder where these peoples are today? This may be the only living document of their musical culture. (the liner notes are definitely worth reading)

I wish to congratulate the KFC radio station for this iniative, I am a Brazaillian guy that loves this radio. In this dark times when the indigenous people are facing so many threats to their cultural heritage and rights guaranteed by our Constitution, it is wonderful to see such things going on, I mean, it is really great! I hope you guys will speak something about the athoritarian and xenophobic government trying to take from those vulnerable peoples the few legal protections they achieved after so many blood has been shed. Land means a lot. Heritage means a lot. Let no man say "this is mine" after centuries of traditional peoples living and developing their on way of live in these places. Long live KFJC!
