"This fourth CD in the Hip's Road World Music series also documents the percussion music of Ghana, but this time of a very different sort: Funeral music.
'The rhythms of the Ghanaian Ewe tribe was transported to the New World and we can hear those same rhythms in the drumming that accompanies spiritual rites in Haiti. The religion of the Ewe is Vaudou. Circular and hypnotic, this is music that induces trances and altered states of consciousness. Recorded in the field at their magical religious ceremonies by Mark Seidenfeld, founder of the Center for Shamanistic Studies, Drums Of Death is a powerful document of the roots of Voodoo. Absolutely one of the best examples of Ghanaian drumming. This recording is a textbook that should be studied by anyone interested in African percussion.' - Milford Graves
(Downtown Music Gallery Newsletter, November 2004)
"The Ashante of Ghana
[...] The selection of music included in this recording is a perfect introduction to the drums of death of the Ashante. Also included is 'Akom', a rhythm used by the fetish priest, when presiding over the ceremony.
The Ashante rhythms in this recording are played by Mekela Akom and his friends, six musicians in all. They live in Kumasi, the capital of Ashante country, and they travel between villages, playing funeral and ceremonies.
The Ewe of Ghana
[...] In this recording, which took place during a funeral in the village of Sogakope, a row of seven drummers are the main rhythm section, complemented by the village women playing wooden clappers and singing death songs. The large main drum is the improvisor, and it's played by two men, one playing the drum skin, and the other playing sticks against the wooden drum body.
The religion of the Ewe is Vaudou. The only way to record the ceremonies is to become a participant. Dring the gin that opens a door, sing to the gods and dance into trance states so that they may descend to the physical and ride you like a master rides his horse. You throw off the yoke of your education and history, and what's left is the deeper self, the part that shares a common history with all the people around you. And then you lose all control, but first you pray that you set the recording levels right."
(Mark Seidenfeld, from the liner notes)
