SANTISIMO EN RITUAL:  Emilio Barreto
African Yoruba Music of the New Land

This live recording, "Santisimo En Ritual" opens up an authentic window into the inner circle of one of the most intense ceremonies within the Santeria tradition, the ritual drum feast. Despite the number of excellent recordings that have recently come into the marketplace there so much more that people yearn to understand about the Afrocuban Lucumi tradition known as Santeria. It is with this thought in mind that Emilio Barreto has released the "Santisimo En Ritual" project. This field recording differs the first Santisimo CD and most Santeria recordings in that the latter follow a Studio performance model, "Santisimo En Ritual" follows a devotional one.

In "Santisimo en Ritual" there are two sets of consecrated drums used at various times in the recording. These drums were also used to summon seven devotees of Yemaya who were commissioned to dance for this feast. Drummers and community elders alike came from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and across the country to worship along side their brothers and sisters from the New York City metropolitan area. The recording, "Santisimo en Ritual" represents a unique opportunity for one to experience the natural flow of a tambor moving through a ritual sequence. It was edited so that there would be no pauses between the songs that could interrupt the ceremony's flow. From the moment you hear the first track you become immediately aware of the trance inducing ambiance unique to a live Santeria feast.
