Documentary: PhD candidate reproduces indigenous music from the Amazon

PhD candidate Magda Pucci studied indigenous music in Brazil. She and her group Mawaca travelled through the Amazon and played with peoples there such as the Paiter Suruí, Kayapó, Ikolen-Gavião and the Huni-Kuin. PhD defence on 19 March.

Pucci made the documentary below some years ago. It is about her encounters with indigenous musicians. ‘Little is known about indigenous music in Brazil and abroad,’ she says. ‘It is important to find out more because this helps you understand how these people look at the world.’
