Yoruba Bata Drums: Elewe Music and Dance

Yoruba Bata Drums: Elewe Music and Dance includes 13 tracks of traditional music from the Yoruba tribe, located in modern-day Nigeria. The rhythms and sounds of the bata drums dictate the dancers' movements, and different Bata drums correspond to different areas of the body. Rhythms communicated through the large and medium drums relate to the shoulders and chest, while rhythms communicated by the smallest drum signal dancers to move their waist, hips, and feet. Liner notes include song lyrics and their English translations as well as explanations of cultural traditions and drum patterns.
