Havana, Cuba, ca. 1957 Rhythms and songs for the Orishas CD

  • $1699


Recorded in Havana in 1957, the ritual rhythms and songs collected by Lydia Cabrera and Josefina Tarafa feature the batá drums, used by practitioners of Santería to salute and summon the gods (orishas). The disc includes a complete cycle of batá salutes to the orishas, called the orú de igbodú, as well as rhythms played during ceremonies to mark the presence of an orisha. With origins in Yoruba religion in West Africa, this disc serves as a hub of Afro-Atlantic music, with ties to related religions in New York, Miami, the Caribbean, and Brazil. 28-page booklet, extensive notes, photos, 74 minutes.
