by John Mason
Homage is paid to the musical artistry of Obatala priest Rodolfo Martin and Ogun priest Lazaro Ros; both are now with the ancestors. Each aponni/flatterer sings a selection of songs for the orisa that are transcribed and translated. The translations are accompanied by detailed endnotes as well as genealogies of the artists. A four page photo-insert includes never before published photographs. Two CD's, with Rodolfo and Lazaro singing the songs, accompany the book. Special guest Orlando "Puntilla" Rios (1947-2008) sings two songs composed by John Mason in tribute to Rodolfo and the town of Matanzas.
