BFE Regular Podcasts
For our Regular Podacst series, we encourage you to submit podcasts on any ethnomusicological topic that is relevant to our field. Ranging from portraying musicians, musical instruments, rituals and celebrations, to debates on cultural hegemony, appropriation and exoticisation of musics, to questions related to sonic spaces, soundscapes, healing processes and social well-being – there are numerous stories to be told.
Our first Regular Podcast is from Portugal-based drummer and ethnomusicologist Lucas Wink, and is entitled 'On the streets with Bombos ensembles: listening to a traditional percussive practice in northern Portugal':
Lucas Wink is a drummer and ethnomusicologist based in Portugal. He holds a Bachelor degree in Music and a Masters degree in Music (Musicology). Currently he is a PhD candidate in Ethnomusicology at the University of Aveiro, where he conducts a research on Bombos funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) of Portugal. He is a researcher at the Institute of Ethnomusicology – Center for Studies in Music and Dance (INET-md) working in the research project "EcoMusic – Sustainable Practices: a study of the post-folklorism in Portugal in the 21st century" (http://ecomusic.web.ua.pt). He also regularly plays the drums for Orquestra Bamba Social, a Luso-Brazilian ensemble mixing samba, jazz, rock and hip-hop based in Porto.
