Abstract:
I completed two periods of fieldwork between January 1976, when I arrived in Recife and made my first contacts with the people of the Sango cult, and the time when I finally formulated the area of inquiry with which this dissertation deals (they lasted from January to June of 1976, and from July to September of 1977, covering a total of nine months). In the course of these initial months, I was concerned with gathering general ethnographic data and music from the Sango cult, as well as from other groups of musicians practising different folk-styles in the interior of the Northeastern region of Brazil.
