The music on this recording was selected from a large collection gathered in and around Salvador, Bahia, during the period 1967-1975. All selections were recorded in the context of the actual ceremonies studied, all in Ketu or Geg-Nago cult houses. The songs have Yoruba texts, with occasional Portuguese words used as exclamations. The present songs, functioning in public ceremonies, known as Oro, which follow well-set sequence of songs. The oro is divided into two parts, the first one being a "Call to the Gods," the second the "Presence of the Gods." The main liturgical function of the first part is to bring about spirit possession which signifies the response of the gods (orishas or vodouns). This is done through ritual dancing and music exclusively. For the second part, the possessed initiates are paraphernalia for the various gods that they personify. They are expected to act and react to each other according to specific myths involving the major deities of the Yoruba pantheon. Includes fourteen performances, recorded and edited by Gerard Behague.
