BAKKE, Rachel Rua Baptista. Tem orixá no samba: Clara Nunes e a presença do candomblé e da umbanda na música popular brasileira. Relig. soc. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.2, pp. 85-113. ISSN 0100-8587. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-85872007000200005.
Information about Afro-Brazilian religions (candomblé and umbanda) often reaches the general public through the phonographic industry, radio and television. Brazilian Popular Music (MPB) is also an important source of information about these religions. For this reason this paper attempts to interpret the ways in which the values from these religions appear on MPB, having as an empirical field the artistic production of Clara Nunes (analyzes of lyrics, performances in concerts, video clips and appearances in TV shows, as well as the symbols chosen to disseminate her work, shown in LP covers and inner-sleeves).
