Yoruba Ritual Vt : A Companion Video
A thirty-minute video features segments of the performances analyzed in "Yoruba Ritual", conveying their sounds, colors, energy, contingency, physicality, and playfulness. The video includes sequences from Age[dot under e]mo[dot under o], Egungun, and Jigbo masking and dancing; divination rituals; an 'sugbo elders' dance evoking 'life's journey'; a Muslim Yoruba celebration of OId al Kabir; as well as a new festival, the Imewuro Annual Rally, combining traditional and contemporary elements. Subtitles key the performances to chapters of the book. It is ideal for classroom use.
