Audio Recordings » Songs

During the interviews conducted between 1994 and 1996 and on other occasions, such as family reunions and festivities, I was able to make rough notes of the words of several songs sung in something close to Portuguese that are part of the Aguda culture. Unfortunately, many of the voices that can be heard here have since left us, taking with them the songs they sang. Other songs have survived, but their words have been much changed and they are often largely unintelligible.
