Four YouTube Examples Of Yoruba Bolojo Music

Edited by Azizi Powell

This is Part II of a two part series on the Yoruba people's Bolojo music & dance. Bolojo music is a form of popular music that developed among the Egbado (Yewa) Yoruba people in the 1970s.

Part II showcases one sound file of Bolojo music by Akinna Vasco Da Gama and one sound file by King Jossy Friday. This post also showcases two videos of Bolojo music by Zeynab.

Click for Part I of this post. Part I provides a compilation of information about Bolojo music & dance from several online articles and YouTube video discussion threads.

Thanks to the featured artists whose sound files and videos are showcased in this post. Thanks also to the publishers of these examples on YouTube.

I'm sharing this music to document this information and help spread examples of this music/dance.

I only know about Bolojo music from coming across examples as a result of "YouTube surfing" African music, and then using Google to search for information about that music genre.

Note: The four examples of Bolojo music that are showcased in this series aren't the only examples of Bolojo music on YouTube. However, I've only found a few more examples of that music on that site. Additional information about this information and its recording artists and additional publication of musical examples would be very welcome.

These examples are presented in chronological order baded on the examples' publishing date on YouTube, with the oldest dated example given first.
