Agere, Ilu, Ego or Agabi, Adahun or Ogun, Igbin, Hamunyi or Avaninha, Hunto, Sato.

They are west-african in origin, I'm guessing Ketu and/or Nagô?

Hi James,

Agueré is a term used in the Afrocuban batá tradition either to refer to the batá salute for Ochosi (orisha of the hunt), or to a specific "camino" within the toque. Hope this helps!

Greeting,there are so many tribes in Africa that trying to investigate all the belief and practices would take hundreds of years,Ketus,and Nagos are tribes of Nigeria which have been influenced by Yorubas,(that's the reason that those names,(Ilu,Aguere,Ogun,etc.),are used by then,they are like many other tribes speaking broken Yoruba,(becouse the Yoruba have been a trade language in Nigeria for centuries),and a lot of this tribes did settle around the Yorubas kingdoms,but it doesn't mean that they are Yorubas.Many traders in Africa ,(since they didn't know the real different),were thinking than these people were Yorubas becouse these reasons.Dr.Zaragemca

Hi there,

Even if I know quite a lot about West African ethnic groups and rhythms, I don't know any of them!
I gues that some of the rhythms you mentionned are not west african but central african and even cuban.

I would be interrested in having info on these too.

See ya.

Hmmm, I wonder if the one you mentioned "Ego" is perhaps Ibo? If so, our group has played that, and here's a short segment:

The names of the rhythms that you wrote remind me the names of the condomble rhythms.

I learnt them long time ago but I remember that certain names are common with the santeria like as Aguere.

Orishas is almost the same !

For example :

Yemaya = jemanjà
Ochossi = oxossi

Hey there

Check out on Youtube: Obatala Music.

The first three orishas to honor is Eleggúa, Ogún and Ochósi. Together they are called the warriors. When you play for Ochósi, you often play Aguere Para Ochósi.
