„The book provides a concise summary of the use of music in
the Santo Daime and UDV religions. Embracing the phenomenology
of musical practice in broad terms, summarizing
its history and treating long-awaited questions. The authors
touch upon crucial points regarding the power and efficacy
of musical performance in religious frameworks, thus pointing
towards fruitful future research in that area.“

Bernd Brabec de Mori,Austrian Academy of Sciences (Vienna)

„In this great, small work, we find privileged passkeys to the
complex musical universe of the so-called „ayahuasca religions“
founded on dense research into how the ‚musicians‘ represented
here understand their musical practices. Besides treating us
to another indispensable chapter of the great Brazilian musical
tradition, they help us understand the relation between music
and religion in broader terms, and the way that we become
spiritual beings through poetry, rhythm, and melody, and
communicate with realities other than the immediate.“

Edmundo Pereira,Professor of Anthropology at UFRN and researcher
at the National Museum/UFRJ
