@upurs007...It is a relic of bygone ages,our forefathers made it a taboo for a woman to drum especially the Yoruba talking drum .But she could, only if the drum was made by gourd,calabash.Because then,the talking drum was not just for entertainment,a filial respect attached to it.But things have changed,now, you have scores of women doing this noble work.

I appreciate the annotation that states that Shango's enemies created the story about the alleged suicide of the Orisha. My godafther always told me this story was created to defame Shango. Great post! Thank you.

@MARASALVATRUCHA199 There is a lot of yoruba material from cuba on recordings, it may be a bit different. But you might like it

@debraklein I actually have that book on my bookshelf but didn't get around to reading it as yet.

the drums, song, and dance are most beautiful!! It's a shame there are so few opportunities for the diaspora to learn and practice their own culture, when the empire music is so readily available. Gbo ilu yoruba, gbo jo yoruba!
