Abstract: This an article whose content portrays a scientific research on the formation aspects (relationship between teaching and learning) contained in Congada. At the epistemological level, we situate it as a historical phenomenon, originally of African origin (Banta, marked by the appreciation of ancestry and the sacred), which suffered resignifications when intermingling with Brazilian culture, for those who became slaves here, which in turn started to connect with the country's “official” religion, catholicism, this being a strategy of survival and reinvention. In methodological terms, the research was based on qualitative assumptions, with a narrative design. It used three resources to raise the data: participant observation; elaboration of a field diary and semi-structured interviews. As for the investigative locus, it was the municipality of Lambari/MG. Eight interviewees participated in the study, having been elected due to the influence and representation they enjoy in the locality's universe, as well as due to the atypical variety of genre found in the captaincy of this cultural festive universe. With regard to the results, the existence of teaching was verified, albeit with a certain change in the meaning, approaching it more from an interactionist perspective, than from the traditional oral transmissibility, essentially empirical. Likewise, it was found that there were changes in the way of teaching and learning congadeiro knowledge, applied to new apprentices, who, despite some intuitive aspects in the way of learning, it has raised concern the lack of interest in relation to knowledge (traditional) pertaining to Congada, under penalty of the discontinuity of the propagation of this (immaterial) cultural heritage of humanity.
