Mateus Aleluia expedition gains virtual museum

An expedition by Mateus Aleluia carried out last year across the African Continent gave rise to the Nations do Candomblé project , in which the singer and composer presents his most recent research within the scope of Pan-African musical ritualistic ancestry.

Records made during the ethno-poetic-musical incursion, such as the songs for the voduns, as well as interviews with priests and cult leaders, can be seen at the Museu Virtual Nações do Candomblé . The tool was designed in partnership with Editora Solisluna and created by photographer Kin Guerra. At the link www.nacoesdocandomble.com.br , the visitor accesses special content, which will be constantly updated, according to the developments of the expedition.

In the online museum, the most diverse artistic languages, such as music, photography and audiovisual are related to ethnographic procedures, making a significant contribution to the understanding of the identity contours of the Brazilian people based on cultures originating from the African diaspora.

Afrocanto das Nações 1 album

The Nações do Candomblé project also gave rise to the album Afroxanto das Nações - Jêje , nominated for the 2022 Latin Grammy, the same year it was released. The album cover was created by graphic artist Enéas Guerra (Solisluna).

Another result of this research is the exhibition Benin on this side , which will open at Casa do Benin, in Salvador, on September 6th. Signed by Seu Mateus, as he is also reverentially known, the exhibition is made up of two installations and runs until December 5th. On the eve of the opening, on 05/09, at 6:30 pm, a chat will take place at Casa do Benin with Mateus Aleluia, the project's artistic director Tenille Bezerra, and researcher Hippolyte Brice Sogbossi, professor at the Department of Social Sciences at the University Federal of Sergipe.
