Àyàn Àgalú Festival 2022 – YouTube

Ayan AgaluOoni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi set to celebrate the first edition of Ayan Agalu festival in Ile-Ife. The voyage of Yorùbá drumming precedes the intrusion of synthetic foreign musical instruments that have eroded the sacred and creative materials of our cultural identities. History has it that Òrìs?? Àyàn (the deity of drum) is revered and eulogised as the spirit who speaks out from inside his wooded abode, (Òrìs?? gbé’nú igi fohùn), in reference to the log of wood from which the drums (ìlù) are fashioned.
