AJU FESTIVALS IN IGBO LAND


African traditional festivals lend their hands generally to drama in their performances. Some of these festivals have their significance and values traceable to the historical origin of the people that celebrate them. They also inform us of the people’s culture and oral traditions. Every traditional festival should be utmost relevant to the deciphering the original history of the inheritors. In many of the instances the story is rendered by the vocalist. In this condition, such a traditional society must have developed their history in song and had repeatedly practiced the melodramatic artistry involved. This is the situation with “Mariachi”, the traditional dance of Mexico. In some cases the drama involved in the rendition of the historical pedagogy that dominates a particular history of origin is depicted in festivals. Aju-Ede festival falls into this latter group. The festival is particularly relevant for reiterating the historical origin of the Nkalaha people. To read the text, click at the address below:
