Jongos, Calangos e Folias: Música Negra, Memória e Poesia

This documentary explores the largely forgotten history of Jongos,
Calangos and Folias de Reis, as well as the social groups associated
with them. It documents the lives of residents of the coastal region of
the state of Rio: the inhabitants of Vale do Paraíba, and individuals
from the old mining towns along the Baixada Fluminense. By focusing on
these three different regions, the film depicts the relationship between
Jongos, Calangos and Folias de Reis, and the challenges associated with
these unique Afro-Brazilian cultural patrimony.
This event is made possible by the generous support of the Jorge Paulo
