The Afro-Sri Lankans are an ethnic minority who have long been overlooked and have received little academic attention. They are a marginalised group, part of a culture which is undergoing rapid assimilation, and any information that we have at present about them may be lost if it is not recorded. There is as yet no adequate history of the Afro-Sri Lankans. The three waves of European colonisers (Portuguese, Dutch and British) that came to the shores of Sri Lanka brought Africans with them to this island in the Indian Ocean. This paper focuses on the largest Afro-Sri Lankan contemporary community. Since Sri Lanka regained its independence, the Afro-Sri Lankans have had to cope with the socio-political changes that have occurred in postcolonial Sri Lanka. The Portuguese identity of the Afro-Sri Lankans is expressed through language, religion, music, song and dance. Les Afro-Sri Lankais constituent une minorité ethnique qui a été longtemps négligée et à laquelle les universitaires n'ont pas accordé une grande attention. Ils forment un groupe marginalisé, appartenant à une culture qui est en train de subir une assimilation rapide. Toutes les informations que nous possédons actuellement à leur sujet pourraient être perdues si elles ne sont pas recueillies. Il n'existe pas encore d'histoire adéquate des Afro-Sri Lankais. Les trois vagues de colons européens (portugais, hollandais et britanniques) qui ont atterri sur les rivages du Sri Lanka ont amené avec eux des Africains sur cette île de l'Océan Indien. Cet article s'intéresse à la plus importante communauté afro-sri lankaise contemporaine. Depuis que le Sri Lanka a regagné son indépendance, les Afro-Sri Lankais ont dû faire face aux changements sociopolitiques qui sont intervenus dans le Sri Lanka postcolonial. L'identité portugaise des Afro-Sri Lankais se traduit à travers la langue, la religion, la musique, le chant et la danse. Os afro-sri lankanos constituem uma minoria étnica desde há muito esquecida, à qual os académicos não têm dado grande atenção. Constituem um grupo marginalizado que faz parte de uma cultura que se encontra em fase de rápida assimilação. Qualquer informação de que disponhamos de momento sobre esse grupo poderá ser perdida se não for registada. Ainda não existe uma história adequada dos afro-sri lankanos. As três ondas de colonizadores europeus (portugueses, holandeses e britânicos) que desembarcaram nas costas do Sri Lanka levaram africanos para esta ilha do Sri Lanka, no Oceano Índico. O presente artigo debruça-se sobre a maior comunidade afro-sri lankana de hoje. Desde que o Sri Lanka recuperou a sua independência, os afro-sri lankanos têm enfrentado as mudanças sócio-políticas que aí ocorreram no período pós-colonial. A identidade portuguesa dos afro-sri lankanos é assinalada pela língua, pela religião, pela música, pelo canto e pela dança.
