Lucas, Glaura and Clayton, Martin and Leante, Laura (2011) 'Inter-group entrainment in Afro-Brazilian Congado ritual.', Empirical musicology review., 6 (2). pp. 75-102.
This paper investigates the phenomenon of entrainment between independent groups of musicians in the context of Afro-Brazilian Congado performance. Based on audiovisual recordings made during a festival in May 2006, we present analyses of four different occasions during which two different groups play different music in close proximity to each other. The results indicate the occurrence of (a) entrainment in phase, (b) entrainment out of phase, and (c) no entrainment. These results are discussed in the particular ethnographic context, as well as with reference to existing literature on entrainment and interpersonal coordination.
