Album

East Africa Witchcraft & Ritual Music. Album 2012 16 Songs. Try it music on this album comes from a part of East Africa whose musical traditions remain largely unknown to the rest of the world. Particularly fascinating is the manner in which music and medicine are combined in the indigenous practice of witchcraft music takes on the power of medicine, and medicine becomes associated with the healing sound of drums, interwoven with beautiful threads of melody. DAVID FANSHAWE, 1975. VARIOUS ARTISTS Artist Format: Audio CD. This CD, originally released as Kenya & Tanzania: Witchcraft and Ritual Music, has recently been re-released, and I couldn't be happier. While I would have liked to see the use of the word witch removed in favor of something less offensive witchcraft is still very feared in much of Africa, this CD remains a wonderful addition to any collection of African music. Drawing from recordings of indigenous religious practices in Kenya and Tanzania, this CD provides an excellent anthology of tribal healing, rites of passage and ceremonies.
