The cult / popular dichotomy established an epistemological andconceptual boundary between musical universes that can be understood as elements of the same continuum, considering that the categories of acculturation, function and ritual are applicable both in the scope of classical music and of the so-called traditional or popular music. The commitment to declassification led me to think of musical practices as cultural tools for a sound system open to the dynamic aspects of social and cultural life in communities. In this sense, I share the importance of philharmonic practices with other musical practices, establishing relationships between two interpenetrating universes, that of the philharmonic bands and that of the “Cante Alentejano”, based on the experiences of men and women who participate in the configuration and organization of the sound landscape.
