IRONTI APONNI MEJI: Remembrance of Two Flatterers
Homage is paid to the musical artistry of Obatala priest Rodolfo Martin and Ogun priest Lazaro Ross; both are now with the ancestors. Each aponni/flatterer sings a selection of songs for the orisa that are transcribed and translated. The translations are accompanied by detailed endnotes as well as genealogies of the artists. A four page photo-insert includes never before published photographs. Two CD’s, with Rodolfo and Lazaro singing the songs, accompanies the book. Two famous guest artists also perform on the CD.
