TRIO PELIGROSO

THE PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE PER OSAIN DEL MONTE

The sacred drums of Cuban santeria

The worship of Santeria is carried out mainly around dances and songs backed with drums. For these ceremonies called Tambores, elegant and sophisticated altars are raised in order to collect the offerings made to the orixas. The sacred instruments are the drums bâtas which are played in different occasions like initiation rites, insiders’ presentation in front of the drums, funerals, ceremonies honouring the ancestors, and blessing of drums and percussion. Trio Peligroso brings together three of the best percussionists of Cuban younger generation.
