Yoruba folk operas

Ulli Beier

Abstract


In this traditional age, we see already emerge the first representatives of a new African culture. Anybody interested in the future of Africa must take an interest, and give encouragement to these pioneers, who give expression to the new age. One such new development is the growth of a folk opera in Yoruba country in Western Nigeria. This development is less than a decade old, yet today there are about half a dozen theatre parties, as they call themselves, who perform musical plays all over the country.
