Illustrated talk by H.U. Beier

Shango is the thunder-god of the Yoruba people in Western Nigeria: he is worshipped, suggests Mr. Beier, because of the intensified experience of life that he enables his worshippers to share. The talk is illustrated with recordings made during the celebration of the annual festival of the god in the Yoruba town of Ede.
