Sacred Music : Sacred Spaces: Ifa & A Love Supreme

John Coltane’s last ever recording was at Babatunde Olatunji’s Center for African Culture in New York City and featured Algie DeWitt on Bata drum. They also performed a delirious version of the song ‘Ogunde Varere’ – a Brasiliian folkloric composition that translates as ‘Prayer To The Gods’. So when it came to the concept behind Sacred Music : Sacred Spaces it was vital to include an Ifa – Yoruba presence and to do this we have recruited my bredren, Adé Egun Crispin Robinson, to oversee  the bata drums at The Chapel. Alafia.
