Training sessions for the dance called Adzogbo, one of the most intense pieces the Ewe have.

My teacher is Agbo Setsoafia, a super drummer and dancer. I spent just over two weeks going to his family’s compound each day, twice a day for lessons on drumming, singing and some dancing too.

It was a lot to take in. The song often follows the dance which follows the drum. The lessons took place in the family’s shrine yard, often under the watchful eye of his Grandfather, Yibor Setsoafia aka “Oluwa”.
