Experimental narrative that explores historical research with the sound dimension of a quilombola territory in Bahia, Brazil.
As candomblé was forbidden in Bahia until the 50s of the last century, police repression was oppressive. Once, a ceremony led by her father was interrupted by a patrol. She tells us that her father, in a trance, sang a song to the Orixá Obaluaê, and the three guards spent the whole night in the yard, dancing to the sound of the candomblé drums.
