One Master Drummer told us that During the Civil Wars to Unite the Old Mali empire the Wolof king turned his back on the rising king, Sundiata Kinte. Once Sundiata conquered the nations, he turned and chased the king through Africa and to the Western Coast of Senegal. Once there, Sundiata forced him and his people to dance and expose their genitals, a way of expressing their shame for their tribal conduct. I don’t know if the story is true, but there is definitely no dance form like Sabar, where the movements are so openly sensual and sexual. It may have started as a dance of disgrace centuries ago, but it is definitely a moving, sensual and erotic form of dance.
|As defined earlier, Orisha Music is that music sang to the deities of the Yoruba based religions of Ifa. There are hundreds of Orisha; however, in the Western Hemisphere we work with primarily fifteen Orisha. The seven primary Orisha also known as the Seven African Powers are Eshu, Ogun, Oshun, Yemoya, Obatala, Shango and Oya. Orisha Music is specific to an Orisha and there is a litany of songs for each Orisha.|
