This book brings together the most representative groups among those who have accepted the challenge and are enthusiastically available for the realization of this project. The print is given a show of folklore and philarmonia, nationally, covering all regions of Portugal, including Madeira and Azores.
Here they get to know ranches and bands, their repertoire, instruments, performances, awards, honorable mentions and other details of interest, transporting each one of them to the region of Portugal that he loves and represents.
There are old ranches. There are centennial bands. This may be - and indeed is - proof that the ideal does not die; and the realization of young people in the ranks of these brave advocates of ethnography and popular music is the certainty that the sap will continue to feed the people within us. Just flip through this book. May this - we hope - contribute to such an interesting and enchanting cultural anthropology.
