Music

$15

   Released by Lila Records.

The music on this CD was recorded in Pogoloti, Havana, Cuba during April of 2000 at the home of Andres Chacon.  Andres, age 74 (during the time of recording), maintains a family tradition that can be traced directly through the generations to the days of slavery.  He began to learn the music of this tradition at the age of nine.  His teachers were ninety and eighty-six at the time.  Andres and his group play batá, a family of three hourglass shaped double headed drums that are used for ceremonial purposes.  All three drums work together with song, dance, and intention to communicate with the Orishas (Yoruban deities).
