in Puerto Rico in high quality. This is an Afro-Cuban/Santeria
güiro to give Moforibale to the orishas. Our goal as a group is to
capture the essence of the African songs to delight and call the
Orishas down to earth.
Group OJAJARA EGÜE is a family group. It consists of 11 members.
The main singer (akpons) Miguel Rodriguez, started singing at the age
of 15 guided by his parents and his padrino Jose Luis Duque (OBA DE
OBA), el Negro. They are the first group to record a güiro of
Santeria in Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico events occur frequently using Güiro also referred to
as (chekeres), a conga and Bell (guataca). This ceremony is also called
a "Bembe." It starts with a slow pace were we sing the prayers, then we
go to a faster pace were we call the Orishas "pulla." That's when you
get the chills.
