PALAU VALDERRAMA, Paloma. Fugas and jugas: sonic alliances in a dance-music-performance of the southern Cauca river valley (Colombia). Rev. colomb. antropol. [online]. 2021, vol.57, n.2, pp.47-68.  Epub 01-Jul-2021. ISSN 0486-6525.

In this paper I analyze how meanings and disputes are created by fugas or jugas, an expression that oscillates between an Afro-Catholic ritual and a dance-music of the black people who inhabit the southern geographic valley of the Cauca river (Colombia). I argue that fugas/jugas are based on an epistemology and ontology that articulates politics-knowledge-affects that build what I call sonic alliances, which invite participation beyond ethnic-racial and human borders for the expansion of their world in performances where they engage in cosmopolitical struggles and negotiations. I draw on my ethnographic experience from the interdisciplinary field of (ethno)musicologies, in dialogue with the anthropology of dance, anthropology of performance and African diaspora studies.

Palabras clave : local knowledges; performance; ethnomusicology; anthropology of dance.
