    Oriki Awon Orisa is a timeless offering that will continue to add value to your learning library. It has been designed to acquaint the Western student with the pedagogical format of indigenous Yoruba teaching and learning. More precisely, Oriki Awon Orisa reinforces four elements of oral tradition 1. Oferere: Here, the teacher recites a verse, one line at a time and the students repeat the line in unison. 2. Kiki: Here, you will become acquainted with the formal ways to greet the orisa shrine (as well as priests of said orisa) 3. Oriki: Here, you will learn to praise poetry that highlights the key attributes of the divinities, as well as the logic coded into language or praise. 4. Orin: Here, you will learn the more celebratory ambience of call and response songs from the West African tradition, including complete chorus and instrumentation. Finally, with all the lyrics in Yoruba and English, Oriki Awon Orisa is a completely unique package that has NEVER been presented to Western... More > audiences before.< Less

    No offense to the people who tried here but are we going to keep trying to reinvent the wheel with the info being put out or are we going to put some real substance out there? We need new things out there that ate not already floating around. This info has been around a while and offers nothing towards the development of Yoruba religious theology. But maybe that is a bias of mine sense that is my goal. These songs, no different than the church songs, help people feel good but offer nothing more and we are at a stage where we should be way beyond that. Sorry guys but I can barely give you a 2 out of 5 on this.
