How does the festival Musidanças, that promotes Portuguese-speaking migrant musicians in Lisbon, conceive its surrounding community,and how does itmobilize or question existing structuresand resources? How does Musidanças manage its identity narratives inconstructing cultural memory? Through an analysis of its programming and manifestos (2001-2012), this presentation intends to articulate a reection on the way in which Musidanças (re)constructs the idea of Lusofonia in promoting interculturaldialogue and social inclusion. Specically, my purpose is to introduce the analysis of how and to what extent Musidanças mobilizes cultural traditions and develops structures for their advancement, thus constituting a place of transnationalidentication and debate. This presentation aims to offer a better practical understanding of some musical protagonists in Lisbon, through which the Portuguese-speaking community is perceived as a genuine form of representation.
