Ufeolorun:



but the lady sounds like Owo-ondo to me,suprised shes ekiti even with the Oma emure  written on it,or is there Emure in owo

That one is from Emure-Ile in Ondo State (there is also an Emure-Ekiti).  The dialect is apparently somewhat Owo and somewhat Ekiti sha.

i dont think we really have a traditional song in ibadan thats why i chose a fuji music by the dead legend, sikiru ayinde barrister.

You r probably right about fuji being the traditional music of oyo/ibadan.
Epo akara and tatalo alamu come to mind.

Seriously? Because I've never seen Anambra dancing Atilogwu; never even heard of it. Only Enugu. Granted, I'm not from those places, so I wouldn't really know.
Anambra dance to Atilogwu very well o. It is a common dance and is popularly known as Nkpokiti over there.

I really love traditional music. It's sad because I think many forms are endangered.
Re: What Is The Traditional Music From Your Town/state Like? by ChinenyeN(m): 4:15pm On Sep 26, 2011
Dead actually. In Ngwa for example, only a fraction of traditional musical forms now exists. The rest are dead. Even the their names are unknown to 99.999% of my generation. Ask a random Ngwa in my generation what Afiogho and Iwani are for example, they'll most likely be unable to tell you, even though the music was being played just 30 years ago.

A whole lot can still be done to salvage the situation.We have to stop/reduce either listening  or buying pseudo-american music being shoved down our throats by these 'COLLABO' musicians and their unhelpful,lazy corporate helpers.i have almost 200 music on my fone and you will never find a terry g. on my fone i would rather listen to atawewe grin grin
