Series: From The Historic Recordings Of Lydia Cabrera And Josefina Tarafa –. Format: CD, Album, Compilation.

Collected by Lydia Cabrera and Josefina Tarafa, these recordings preserve extremely rare bembé lukumi ritual drumming used by practitioners of Santería to summon the gods or salute Cuba's African nations. It is remarkably different from the urban style heard today in Havana, although some of the same songs were sung in both city and countryside.

Matanzas, Cuba ca. 1957: Afro-Cuban Sacred Music. 1957: Afro-Cuban Sacred Music features archived Cuban music from 1957. In particular, the music is highly percussive, a style of drumming intended to summon the gods. As you might expect, the music has a very spiritual feel, along with a certain degree of mania when you try and envision numerous Cuban percussionists in a religious daze drumming like mad. Best appreciated as an anthropological artifact. The extensive liner notes accentuate the historical essence of the music.

Only 14 left in stock (more on the way). Music is one way Cuban Lucumí (descendants of African slaves) have retained cultural ties to Africa. During the 19th century these descendants established cabildos, mutual aid and social societies based on African ethnic "nations" under the sponsorship of the Roman Catholic Church.

Roig passed away in 1970, just before the Cuban music entered its latest renaissance.
