YORUBA BATA DRUMS:
Elewe Music & Dance

$18

Released by Folkways.

YORUBA BATA DRUMS: Elewe Music & Dance
Recorded at ILA RANGUN ODUN
EGUNGUN FESTIVAL.
Originally released in 1980.
52 minutes

This CD is a great sample of original bata drumming and singing in their original homeland.  We are thankful to be able to offer these recordings to you.

Elewe Egungun, otherwise known as Ebora-Spirit, represent one such music and dance form used in the Odun Festival. This spirit also known as One From Heaven, Ara Orum Kinlin or Ogege manifests itself in the words 'egungun ebora, ogege ebora, Kankin Kanhinfe ebora, ododi ago abeti aso fele le' which literally means 'egungin spirit, ogege spirit, a complete masquerade, the tip of which moves in the direction of the wind.'

Re-released by Folkways in small 'to-order' quantities, these CDs do not have cover art but do include copies of orginal notes.  These are very rare CDs and are not sold in stores.  We special order these from folkways and have them in stock for instant shipment!
