Adede Yoruba Ceremonial Dance Costume

Adede Yoruba Ceremonial Dance Costume

$5,500.00Price

The Yoruba people honor their ancestors during the annual Egungun Festival. The dancer spins rapidly, causing the multi-colored panels to fan out like a flower. The act of spinning, the sound of drumming, as well as sensory deprivation inside the costume allows the dancer to enter into a state of non0ordinary reality and communicate with the ancestors. The small wooden figure at the top is activated after the dancer hammers a nail into it, inviting the ancestral spirit inside.
