Abstract

expressionist paintings (Dickie, 2000) to religious music or ceremonies by tribal members for the spirit-guides (Becker, 2004; Roseman, 1991). We broaden this notion of art-as-communicative-process to include behavioural coordination at the obvious verbal level, but also not-so-obvious non-verbal levels (as in string quartets, see Gilboa and Tal-Shmotkin, 2010). Playing it cool The young man [who had danced out of turn at a ritual involving drumming], a product of the Cuban revolution and enrolled in one of the officianado schools of folkloric performance, was not likely a creyente [member of the religion], and so would have no immediate reason to know the rules of a toque de santo [Santería ritual]. As Alberto [the author's drumming teacher and ambassador to these ritual ceremonies] has stated on many occasions, the younger members of folkloric groups are much more likely to interpret the songs and dance that are based on Afro-Cuban religious traditions as `art', all but dismissing the religious content and antecedents. [Hagedorn, (2001), p.83] Despite the obvious talent of the dancer, and even that the character of the movements more or less corresponded correctly to the song performed, the lead drummer stopped the ceremony to scold and evict the dancer.
