Description
One audio cassette tape. Ethnomusicologist Martha Ellen Davis serves as emcee. Torres (drums) and his apprentice Yhanez (drums) discuss the origins of Cuban batá drumming and the different types of drums: Okónkolo ("baby" drum), Itótele ("father" drum), and Iyá ("mother" drum). He also describes Santeria and the orishas. They perform with Torres's sons, Aruan and Arelan, and his other apprentice, Font. Alfaro is a featured guest vocalist. The group was based in Miami.

The song titles reference the name of the orisha being sung to and the specific rhythm, or "toque," in parenthesis. The "Oru Seco" opens the batá ceremony as a supplication to the orishas to attend and participate.

Description
One reel to reel tape. (Copied onto C86-117) Recording (in Spanish) of a radio program by Fiesta Guajiro in WQBA, which began broadcasting in 1948 in Cuba, and in 1978 in the US. Fiesta Guajiro is a six-member group with four singers (Martiea, Agaptic Gonzales, Miguel Ramirez, and Rocardo Capote), two musicians (Bertz Acebedo on laud-- a Cuban style of mandolin -- and Teodoro Maya on guitar). All were native Cubans. Their program aired Sundays 9-10am, WQBA, 108 am. They discuss history of the group and show; the Decima tradition (a 17th century 10-line improvised verse form); personal histories; and themes of decima improvisations. For more information see field notes in S 1628, Box 1, folder 10. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
