Cross-section of women, singers, dancers in the festival.
Note the wooden sticks they're holding... It's used in producing a clapping rhythmic sound spicing up the drumming.
Our culture is beautiful and much be preserved.

Most parents will never show the next generation things like this nor speak their language. Some fall in the "my father said am urhobo" cathegory. But can gbeseru on top english everything. Kudos to the sure parents that think it's not all about english.

Opharhe, wve kobiruo. Do!

This is my culture, culture is everything! We should be called by our rightful names. Awanr'ihwo r'Urhobo!

I wish I was there to document this. The problem is that government and the ministries of Arts and Culture won't pay attention to this because it is a minority festival.

Urhobo is great! Urhobo Wadooooooo! Isoko Wadooooooo! Okere Wadooooooo!


Ona no même, Oshare r'Agbon! grin Ihwo r'Agbon wadooooooo!

Download a recent song that features our language with this link :

Eh! Oghene bruphiyo kewe v'emo r'Urhobo r'INairaland ejobi.

The govt., ministry of arts and culture must not pay special attention to it. There are many festivals in Urhoboland- From Iyerhi of Ughelli to Ekene of Agbarha-Otor(every 15 years) to Idju Owhurhie of Agbarha-Ame(Warri) to Edjenu of Okpara (every 30yrs or so), Ogba-Urhie of Ughievwen... The list is endless.

Let us do our thing and sell it to the world in the best way possible.

At least, I know Goge Africa has covered the Odju - Owhurhie festival of the Agbarha-Ame (Agbassa) people twice. You know what it means to get a cultural celebration covered by Goge Africa. Something or someone drew their attention.

I have also seen Mofe Damijo of Aladja In his capacity as commissioner for culture and tourism, I'm one of those occasions.

We are a majority as far as Delta state is concerned... Victim card should not be our thing at all.

Thanks fratermathy for inviting the rest. Let us celebrate our culture.

Emo r'Urhobo wadoo.

Don't bring bigotry into this thread. I beg you. There's no where Itsekiri was mentioned here. If you think these are itsekiri masquerades, create your own thread and state it there.

Don't bring your "genetic engineering" here. Since when did Okumagba become an Itsekiri person? Or you can't see him there? You think Okumagba will attend an Itsekiri event?

That family's patriarch is the king of Okere-Urhobo in Warri. He's like the leader of the entire clan and he deserves it as well. His fathers fought for the liberation of the Urhobos in Warri from ethnic suppression.
