Los Afortunados - Musica Yoruba

This particular clip features the vocal talents of Emilio Barreto (akpwon). Felix is on Iya, Miguel Rios is on itotele, and Mikel Sotolongo is on okonkolo. Ernesto "El Gato" and Pedrito Martinez are in the ankori section. The great dancer Xiomara Rodriguez is seen here dancing a mean "Elegua". They then go into an Arara, where the drums stop playing and hand claps take over as is usually done when singing Arara.
