1. David De Souza, Corey Ann. Samba, Mulatas and the Social Meaning of Carnival.

Degree: PhD, Anthropology, 2015, University of Florida

Brazilian carnival is a multi-billion dollar cultural institution presenting idealized nationalist performances for the global mediascape. This research addresses the samba of Rio de Janeiros carnival as a meta-language for cultural ideologies relevant to the people of Rio de Janeiro (Cariocas), and to the Brazilian nation. By focusing on the passistas and other protagonists of the production of carnival, this project investigates racial, gendered and religious ideologies surrounding the construction of a nationalist symbol. Furthermore, this research proposes that carnival performances amplify, rather than invert, actual social relations found in Carioca society. Contrary to the theory of carnival as a performance of inversions, this paper contributes to a growing body of research promoting a performance-centered interpretation of nationalist ideology, highlighting the sacred aspects of carnival relevant to the productions main protagonists. This research incorporates original ethnographic fieldwork data collected in multiple sites, including: samba schools, night-clubs, academic workshops on samba held in elite Brazilian venues, carnival venues, and informal gatherings of research participants in Rio de Janeiro and Bahia, Brazil (June 2011 to May 2013).

2. Nyamuame, Samuel Elikem. History, Religion and Performing Yeve Ewe Dance-Drumming, Songs and Rituals at Ave-Dakpa, Ghana.

Degree: PhD, Music, 2013, University of Florida

This study examines one of the significant and spiritually powerful traditional religious cult, its rituals and musical practices called Yeve as performed at Ave-Dakpa in the southeastern Volta region of Ghana. As a cult, Yeve is a kind of secret society whose rituals and other performative practices are restricted from the public. Throughout Ghana,Yeve is not found among any region besides the southern part of the Volta region. Thus, Yeve and its practices becomes quintessentially Ewe religious and musical tradition. It is also practiced among the neighboring Ewe speaking people in Togo and Dahomey, now the Republic of Benin. Yeve also has a historical tie to the Yoruba Shango in southwestern Nigeria through its characteristics and practices. Yeve is perhaps the most overlooked traditional religious society due to pervasive presence and long lasting influences and establishment of Christianity. However, the cult is popularly known and referenced by all not only in the Volta region but across entire Ghana due to its fearful and destructive nature as a mechanism for crime preventions and a means of settling disputes among others. This study critically examines the ethnography of Ave-Dakpa, its people and belief system. It further discusses the historical backgrounds and the functions of the Yeve cult and its ritual practices since its establishment investigating the state of the cult before and after Ghana’s independence and the missionaries’ interventions and failures in the abolishment of the Yeve cult. In addition, the study a variety of songs,dance-drumming, song and drum texts as a powerful tool in empowering and igniting successful ritual activities and performance. As a resistance to changes and modernity, this study describes Yeve cult and its practices as Ghana’s colonial past with the positive notion to preserve traditional values embedded in rituals and esoteric knowledge systems in Ave-Dakpa and the continuity and active maintenance of authentic and unadulterated modes of its dance-drumming.

3. Azoubel, Juliana P. Frevo and the Contemporary Dance Scene in Pernambuco, Brazil Staging 100 Years of Tradition.

Degree: MA, Latin American Studies, 2007, University of Florida

This research analyzes the formalization and development of frevo, one of the most important Brazilian popular music and dance traditions, in the streets and theatres of the metropolitan area of Recife, the capital of the state of Pernambuco. Historical analyses and ethnographical research demonstrate the contribution of selected popular artists in the development of frevo as a dance tradition from 1907 to 2007. My participation in frevo classes and informal interviews with members of popular and contemporary dance companies allowed the collection of specific dates, pictures and video materials about frevo contests and the creation of teaching methods. Information gathered on the work of popular artists Coruja and Nascimento do Passo, and dance companies of Pernambuco illustrate the different interpretations artists have had of this tradition in the twenty-first century. My investigation focuses on the development of frevo as a popular dance tradition and its influence on theatres and dance companies in Pernambuco. This work addresses controversial ideas that are the nurturing elements of Pernambuco?s contemporary dance scene. It investigates the influence of regionalist movements, the ideology of the dominant class, and Freyre?s racial democracy on the placement of frevo as a symbol of identity for Pernambuco and as a core element for the state?s contemporary dance scene. I argue that, as Pernambuco celebrates '100 Anos de Frevo' (100 years of frevo), frevo is linked to the nationalist ideology of 'mesti?agem' in twentieth century Brazil, associated within Brazil with the mixture of the 'three races.' I show the reflection of this ideology on the formalization of the tradition and on the tension between dancers and choreographers as they perform frevo and try to understand its formalization process. These dancers view this process through the eyes of the dominant class, mostly composed of European descendents, who often denies the Afro-Brazilian influence in Pernambuco's cultural traditions. I recognize the interest of scholars and tourists in frevo as a musical style and show the influence of frevo in the dance scene of the state, but emphasize that little scholarly attention has been paid to frevo as a dance form. The view of scholars (and performers) of frevo as an 'urban expression,' a symbol of identity for the 'mixed population' of the city of Recife, has, to a certain extent, focused little attention on the formalization of the tradition, much less on the popular artists who contributed to that key process. As a researcher, teacher and performer of frevo, I intend to provide a historical background in which to place the new generation of frevo dancers, and to give recognition to the people who have dedicated their lives to preserving the tradition. I investigate the influence of several key artists in the current dance scene, when public spectacles, in this case, the staging of frevo, become the source of inspiration for contemporary dancers and choreographers. I believe my experience as a frevo dancer, born… Advisors/Committee Members: Crook, Larry N. (committee chair), Needell, Jeffrey D. (committee member), Frosch, Joan D.
