Eleggu Music of Santer ?A Live Afro-Cuban Ceremoni
Recorded in Havana, this is a Santería ceremony to honor and evoke Elegguá. Elegguá is known as a multisided trickster and gatekeeper. A 'güiro', which refers to the shaker instrument also refers to the ceremony and style of music. These events occur frequently in Havana using güiros (also refered to as abwes and chekeres), a conga and a bell (usually played on a hoe blade call 'guataca'). This type of ceremony is very similar to what some call a 'bembe'.
