PROJECT: NON-INSTITUTIONALIZED IMMATERIAL RECORDS: ESTUDIES AND DIFFUSION OF ETHNOGRAPHIC COLLECTION OF BRAZILIAN INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE.

This project aims to study expression means of Brazilian Intangible Cultural Heritage and diffusion, organization and preservation activities of audiovisual and photographic records which is in the Ethnographic Collection of Brazilian Intangible Cultural Heritage (1972-2012). Gathered by Maria Ignez N. Ayala e Marcos Ayala the collection has many voiced, audiovisual

and photographic documents proceeding from fieldwork in São Paulo and Brazilian Northeast. We will study in this project some documents such as oral narratives and poesy, account, rezas cantadas ( a sort of praying where people pray it in a singing manner), and songs of São Paulo and Brazilian Northeast traditional communities; relationship between batuque and samba-lenço poetic and popular Catholicism. We also intend to describe how preservation and organization of digital files occur in different manifestations of popular culture; to publicize digital files and studies through presentations in scientific meetings( conferences ,lectures, debates and other oral communications), in digitalized documentation shows and in publications.
