BEIGU NEEYO
Remembering the Chiefs

An oral history ceremony of the Dagomba people in Ghana.

$16

Released by earthcds.


Beigu Neeyo is a ceremony that occurs twice a week at sunrise, on Monday and Friday. The drummers go to the Chief's residence and sing about the Chief, past Chiefs, their people's history and proverbs.  This was recorded in the outskirts of Wa, in the far northwest of Ghana on August 3rd of 2001 by Lawrence Millard.  Great drumming on 'talking' drums and excellent example of how African traditions are still alive today.
