Uma comunidade diferente das outras. Il jongo e la costruzione di collettività di matrice africana nel contesto urbano di Campinas, Brasile

Ingrid D'Esposito


In this article we focus on the construction process of the Comunidade Jongo Dito Ribeiro, born at the beginning of 2000 through the reactivation of jongo, an afro-brazilian cultural practice. Thanks to community leader’s narratives and “story of life”, we concentrate on the transformation of her personal path in the jongo universe, into the community collective path; on its “territorialization” process and on the performative dimension of jongo, subject to innovations and adjustments dependent on the context of its reproduction.
