“As Armas A Meu Adufe”, roughly translated, means “My weapon is the adufe”. For many centuries, this drum has been a defining element of Portuguese folklore. Traditionally, it is played only by women. The unique cultural aspects of the Beira Baixa region of eastern Portugal inform the songs and myths surrounding the adufe. José Relvas is one of the last makers of this instrument.
