Sociability networks, identities and generational interchange: from the "Burrow of Music" to the African music circuit of Amadora
Keywords:Música, migrações, gerações, etnografia urbana
AbstractThe generation borders are usually seen as factors of social differentiation in what concerns practices and constructions of certain musical genres and related lifestyles. Starting from an ethnographic research in the Cova da Moura neighborhood and other places of the musical circuit performed by Cape-Verdean immigrants working at Amadora, we conclude that the interchanges between artists from several generations, built from shared knowledge about new technologies and learning of traditional instruments, have a great importance in the construction of social identities. Thus the authors show how music is in the center of the migrant trajectories crossing several spaces of Amadora.
