Centro Cultural Oca Dos Curumins


Information extracted from Facebook:

Our workshop number 5, given by  Grupo Afrolaje  in partnership with  Centro Cultural Oca dos Curumins , will experience singing, called a point.

The workshop is FREE and for all ages !!!!

“The jongo song is responsorial.It is sung first by the soloist, with free improvised verses, and the chorus answered by all.Jongo’s points have short phrases that portray the contact with nature, daily facts, day-to- Day of manual labor in the farms and the revolt in the face of oppression, they are sung in the language of the rural man, with an accent of black-old, and gungunados, in a kind of guttural sound well grumbled out of the chest. African dialect of Bantu origin, the Kimbundus, are created suddenly and require great creativity, mental agility and poetry, very common to black bantus.

“The points can be of several types:

Opening or license: to start the jongo wheel; Praise: to welcome the place, the owner of the house or a jongueiro ancestor; Aim: to cheer the wheel and entertain the community: demand, puffiness or “gurumenta”: for the fight, when a jongueiro challenges his rival to demonstrate his wisdom; Enchante: sung when one jongueiro wishes to bewitch the other by the point; Closing or farewell: sung at dawn to greet the arrival of the day and close the party. ”
