Workshop on the Music of Cape Verde
Journey of a Badiu: The Story of Cape Verdean-American Musician Norberto Tavares
Sunday, December 10, 2006, 2-4 p.m. Luce Hall, MacMillan Center, Yale University
Dr. Susan Hurley-Glowa, Assistant Professor of Music, Franklin & Marshall College
The workshop will begin with a screening of the new unreleased documentary video Journey of a Badiu: The Story of Cape Verdean-American Musician Norberto Tavares (50 minutes). Afterwards, there will be a question and answer session about the film and the research that went into it. This will be followed by a discussion of Cape Verdean music in general, putting Norberto Tavares's music into context by explaining it in relation to the major genres of Cape Verdean music. His funana style came up from black rural communities in Cape Verde since independence in 1975 to become part of the national musical identity. The workshop will cover the basic stylistic characteristics of the morna and coladera, which have been popular in Cape Verde for decades, before turning to folk genres from Santiago , namely, batuku and funana. The workshop will end by pointing out the connections between the music of Lura (who will be performing in New Haven the same day) and the musical traditions from Santiago that Norberto and others helped to popularize in the decades after independence.
