AllMusic Review by

Since the fine Areito Afro-Cuban percussion LPs vanished, there's been a drought in this field, so this useful collection of Oru (liturgies) -- different from the Areito series -- is specially welcome. It opens with what is essentially a series of demonstration rhythms, but once percussion and vocals are integrated, things warm up in fairly lengthy invocations of Shango and of "all the saints."
