about

These recordings of Santería drumming and singing rituals feature four Cuban Santería groups calling the gods (orishas) by performing rythmic sequences called orus. Recorded in the Cuban provinces of Matanzas and Havana City in 1983-1984, these ceremonies and drums have their roots in the ancient Yoruba religion of Africa and are rarely heard outside of Cuba. Notes in English and Spanish. 24 tracks. "A music at once raw and elegant, powerful and subtle." —Miami Herald
