This chapter focuses on one central period within the flows across the Atlantic in the pursuit of wealth: the eighteenth-century Brazilian gold rush in the region that came to be known as Minas Gerais, or general mines. The complex hybrid cultural expressions forged within and through the transcontinental flows provide a unique insight into the complexities of the Golden Atlantic and the ways in which music has been deployed to engage with multiple encounters in contexts of intricate power relations. Music was part of everyday life in the mines. According to José Maria Neves, the colonial repertory in Minas employed Baroque, pre-Classical, and Classical elements. In many parts of Minas, a number of different dance associations turn out for the festival of the rosary, and each represents a distinct community, which is enacted through the performance of a distinct and identifiable musical genre.
