Cabo Verde and its Music – a Virtual Museum: an online space that proposes a dive into the musical universe of Cape Verde

The project "Cabo Verde and its Music – a virtual museum" arises following my book Cabo Verde and its Music – a Dictionary of Personalities, which was published in 2016 and traces the biographies and discographies of musicians, singers, and other personalities who make up the musical universe of Cabo Verde. Now, using material collected over a period of more than 20 years, the proposal is to create a virtual museum to share an extensive collection of information, which includes not just texts and photos, but also videos, press cuttings, posters for concerts, covers of discs and interviews among other kinds of documents. Many of these items require preparative technical work to permit them to be used in a virtual museum. To preserve memory by being able to tell its stories – this is the foundational idea from which Cabo Verde and its Music continues. And it counts on your support.

About the author

Gláucia Nogueira, a Brazilian journalist and anthropologist, has been working on several topics connected with Cabo Verdean culture since the beginning of the 1990s, when she began to collaborate with the press in Cabo Verde, contributing journalistic coverage of activities linked to the Cabo-Verdean community settled in Lisbon. The idea of making a study of Cabo-Verdean music arose in 1994, while she was spending several months in the city of Praia. In 1997 she began a long bibliographical and discographical investigation, complemented with hundreds of interviews, among Cabo-Verdean communities in France, Portugal, The Netherlands and in Cabo Verde, where she lived for 13 years from 2002 to 2014. Gláucia Nogueira holds a Masters in Heritage and Development from the University of Cabo Verde, and a Ph.D in The Heritage of Portuguese Influence from the University of Coimbra. She had published the books "O Tempo de B.Léza: Documents and memories" (2006), which will be published in an updated English edition in 2021; "Notícias que Fazem a Historia. A Música de Cabo Verde pela imprensa ao longo do seculo XX" (2007), "Batuku de Cabo Verde. Percurso histórico-musical" (2015) and "Cabo Verde and its Music – a Dictionary of Personalities" (2016).

    Conclusão da campanha de crowdfunding

    Caros amigos,

    Venho informá-los, com muita alegria, que a campanha de crowdfunding iniciada a 27 de fevereiro e concluída ontem, 27 de abril, atingiu 4.850€, o que corresponde a 105% da meta estabelecida.

    A fase que agora se inicia deste trabalho será bastante exigente, e espero honrar o apoio recebido.

    A aposta é transformar o museu virtual, de que se viu até agora um esboço, num espaço de memória, um produto online educativo e ao mesmo tempo atraente, ao qual todos os interessados na música de Cabo Verde regressarão em busca de informações ou de entretenimento.

    Nos próximos dias entrarei em contato para o envio das recompensas. 

    Mais uma vez, muito obrigada!

    Gláucia Nogueira
