MUSICAL LEGACY: EXPLORING THE CABO VERDE – NEW BEDFORD MUSICAL CONNECTION

Thursday, March 4
Time:
6 – 7pm
Instructor: Candida Rose
All ages
Cost: Choose to pay $5, $10, $15 or $20 for this class. Select your preferred tier at check-out.

Enrollment closes at 4:30pm on March 4.

Although immigrants from Cabo Verde left their homeland in search of a more sustainable life elsewhere, especially in New England, they never forgot where they came from and in turn, did not allow their children and grandchildren to forget either. Cabo Verdeans kept ties to the homeland in many ways, including through folkloric and popular music, which developed into a transnational cultural field that came to unify Cabo Verdeans on both sides of the Atlantic.

New Bedford is considered to be the cradle of Cabo Verdean/American history, notably beginning in the mid 1800’s. Therefore, the main goal of this presentation is to examine processes that allowed Cabo Verdeans to establish and maintain their cultural – and especially musical – heritage in North America, with a focus on New Bedford; to explain the embeddedness of traditional music in the daily life of immigrant communities both in the past and present; to illuminate some of the novel contributions of Cabo Verdeans and Cabo Verdean-Americans from and connected to New Bedford to the U.S. musical landscape; and to highlight some of the transnational connections that are still evident within today’s musical community.

Registered participants will receive a link via email before the class, so be sure to provide a current email address. The virtual classroom will open 30 minutes before the start of class.

This class will use Zoom. You do not need a Zoom account, but you will need to download the free app prior to the start of class. You can find it in the app store or visit https://zoom.us/ to download.
