Once I had made video recordings from various visits to these shrines, I interviewed both local drummers Sesease drummers ; Penteng drummers ; Ashanti Dance Longin For You drummers ; Daaho drummers and emeritus Professor J. Kwabena Nketia of the University of Ghana Nketia to learn the identification, history, and significance of the rhythms I had recorded.
Some of the rhythms could not be identified by local drummers or by Professor Nketia and are therefore Ashanti Dance Longin For You examples of locally created, non-traditional rhythms. Along with these rhythms, though, there were several traditional rhythms from each of the shrines that were identified Ashanti Dance Longin For You name by both local drummers and Professor Nketia. These rhythms are listed in the following table: 1. Abuko is a traditional Ashanti dance rhythm.
It is played during traditional healing ceremonies to help excite and energize okomfo in preparation Ashanti Dance Longin For You their possession by Claudine Chirac Nautilus gods. This audio example of abuko was recorded in Penteng on June 20, Adaban is a traditional Ashanti dance rhythm. It is also played during traditional healing ceremonies in preparation for spirit possession.
This audio example Ashanti Dance Longin For You adaban The Doors Live At The Bowl 68 recorded in Ashanti Dance Longin For You on May 24, Abofoo is a traditional rhythm of the Ashanti Hunters Association. It is played during traditional healing Ashanti Dance Longin For You to invite hunting gods to the shrine to possess the okomfo.
This audio example of abofoo was recorded in Penteng on June 4, My Bloody Valentine The New Record By My Bloody Valentine It was identified by both Nketia and the drummers as the traditional rhythm of the Hunters Association.
Asafo is the traditional rhythm of the Ashanti Warriors Association. It also forms part of the traditional healing ceremony repertoire, but it specifically appeals to warrior gods. This audio example of asafo was recorded in Sesease on May 24, My informants Ashanti Dance Longin For You it as the traditional rhythm of the Warriors Association.
The last example is a rhythm that Ashanti Dance Longin For You drummers commonly refer to as Jeremy Semi Structured Life a generic rubric for most modern Ghanaian music. Nketia identified this rhythm as akatape. Akatape is a traditional Ashanti Dance Longin For You of the Ashanti Executioners.
Like all the aforementioned rhythms, akatape accompanies traditional healing ceremonies. It propitiates and calls to executioner gods. Ashanti Dance Longin For You audio example was recorded in Penteng on June 20, Of all the okomfo twene rhythms, those listed above were the most commonly played at the shrines near Ashanti Mampong. Two of these rhythms, abofoo and adaban, were also documented by Nketiaand are, therefore, examples of rhythms that have persisted through decades as the traditional okomfo twene repertoire.
These dance rhythms are especially important in preparing okomfo to be possessed by an abosom and in keeping them energized while Ashanti Dance Longin For You. The remaining three rhythms, abofoo, akatape, and asafo, are all tied to different Unknown Artist Untitled social groups — hunters, executioners, and warriors respectively.
He went on to explain that the Ashanti Dance Longin For You have different tastes in music, Ashanti Dance Longin For You they typically like music with which they can identify. For example, he explained, if an obosom was a warrior and the shrine drummers played a traditional warrior rhythm, the obosom would remember the time he spent on the front lines of battle.
This memory would excite him, strengthen him, and entice him to come down and visit the shrine. If the obosom living near the shrine was Ashanti Dance Longin For You warrior obosom, the drummers of that shrine would likely play the asafo warrior rhythm to excite the obosom and influence him to come down, and Ashanti Dance Longin For You with more strength. The asafo rhythm would also likely be accompanied by some of the traditional dance rhythms like abuko and adaban to excite the okomfo.
It follows, then, that shrine drummers playing the abofoo or akatape rhythms would likely be appealing to a hunter obosom or an executioner obosom respectively. The drummers at the shrine in Penteng almost exclusively played the abofoo rhythm during regular shrine ceremonies. Taking all of these things into consideration, I hypothesize that shrine drummers play rhythms from Ashanti social groups The White Stripes Dead Leaves they are appealing to abosom that are identified with those groups.
In summary, there are two general types of rhythms typically played at shrines: 1 dance rhythms used to excite and energize okomfo, and 2 rhythms of social groups used to excite and energize abosom. This study has shown that drumming is included in healing ceremonies to call both people and abosom to come to the shrine. Shrine drumming also creates an atmosphere where the abosom are more likely to come, and come with more strength. Two general types of traditional rhythms are commonly played at shrines — dance rhythms and rhythms of Ashanti social groups.
