Dagar Gyil Ensemble Of Lawra - Dagara: Gyil Music Of Ghana's Upper West Region


  • £23.99

The gyil music of the Dagara is a complex multi-dimensional symphony of notes played on traditional xylophones, bringing to life an animist expression that reveals a cultural dialogue between the spirits, the deceased, musicians, dancers, and audience alike. Recorded by Hisham Mayet in Lawra, Ghana in 2019, the album features Aaron Bebe Sukura, one of the gyli's master musicians.
