EP15 - Awurê en Bahía

Awurê en Bahía

The trip along the Rota do Samba de Roda presented us with incredible encounters, profound knowledge and unforgettable stories, but above all it nourished us with lessons that we will take with us for a lifetime. We literally drank at the source, with humility, seriousness and great devotion to the Masters and Masters who, during every day of our journey through Salvador, the Recôncavo and the Sertão, touched us with the simplicity of the grandeur that lives in these ladies and sambadeiros. At the front, we have an ancestral commitment to watch over, present and spread the origins of Samba de Roda as it was passed on to us. Live the samba de roda, live the Bahian Recôncavo, Bahia and the samba!! Awure for you.

Awurê 2020 campaign teaser

Teaser of the crowdfunding campaign for recording EP and Clip Awurê, with authorial and unpublished songs by renowned composers, such as Teresa Cristina, Altay Veloso and Antonio Sima. Awurê is a musical group whose main guideline is to highlight Brazilian rhythms and African sounds, break intolerances and make popular culture from the ancestral African influence in our society. The focus on the diversity of rhythms and sounds is what marks the musical conception adopted by the Project, within a respect for the sacred and as a way of preserving our memory, rescuing our identity through culture, reafricanizing samba and other rhythms in diaspora. An exponent in the city's cultural scene, he feels the need to consolidate his trajectory in an audiovisual work that, in addition to rewriting his own history as a protagonist, demystifies through art, the effects and causes of religious racism in society.

Making of Live do Awurê held in their new backyard in Rio de Janeiro.

AWURÊ - Our Mission

The term ÀWÚRÊ is part of the great collection of Yorubá words and has a rather complex formation (*À*= us or us, *WÚ* = desire and *RÉ* ibukun = su the blessings); but that has crossed the time and is still spoken, along with other languages, in the west part of Africa. Mainly in Nigeria, Benin, Togo and Sierra Leone. In most of the sacred chants in reverence to the African gods, the term appears to mention and wish luck, blessings, prosperity, good things in general. And with the purpose of taking such good things, with music as a link and drums as the catalyst for this ancestral energy, the group ÀWÚRÉ appears. Formed from unpretentious meetings, by members full of baggage and coming from different schools, the group has the traditional samba as its main driving force. In addition to the diversity of rhythms and sounds, it is what marks the adopted musical concept. A tour through the various forms of samba, jongo, ijexá, coco and some Candomblé touches; the group works with respect for the sacred and as a form of cultural preservation.

Singers Ari and Priscila tell a little about the Awurê group. They speak of the ethmology of the word that comes from the Yoruba language and generally means "good luck and prosper", good things in general. He was born in the Madureira neighborhood, birthplace of samba. In Madureira, his samba circles are set in Awurê's backyard, a place under a large tree, in contact with nature and the energy of the Orixás. The Group was born to be a reference and resistance in the struggle of black people and African-based religions against prejudice and intolerance.
