Old African Music

Yoruba Women Of The Drum

Not a lot of information on this album from 1995 with Madam Comfort Omoge and Madam Mujidat Ogunfala, called ‎”Yoruba Women Of The Drum”. It’s best to listen to it…

More information on Discogs.

Comfort Omoge was a Nigerian musician known as the queen and chief exponent of Asiko music, a traditional African folklore music of the Ikale people in the Western State of Nigeria.

Rhythm styles on this album are called Waka and Asiko.

A second album seem to have existed, called “Dueling Turbans”, from the same year, where Madam Comfort Omoge appears as main artist, featuring Ogunfalu, probably Madam Mujidat Ogunfalu who had her own group, called Apala Waka Group, as seen above.
