Episode #6: Listening with the Body with Juan Diego Diaz

In this episode we discuss the aesthetics of spiritual possession with Juan Diego Diaz, whose article "Listening with the Body: An Aesthetics of Spirit Possession Outside the Terreiro," was published in the Winter 2016 issue of the journal, Ethnomusicology. In his investigation of the aesthetics of spiritual possession, Juan Diego compares the ritualistic practices of Candomblé and the musical performances of Orkestra Rumpilezz to highlight the similarities and differences between spiritual possessions in the context of Afro-Bahian music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Juan Diego Diaz Meneses is a post-doctorate visiting fellow at the University of Essex. He obtained his PhD in ethnomusicology from the University of British Columbia in 2014 and primarily specializes in Bahian musical styles.
