Chant to Yemaya – Traditional Yoruba Chant

A traditional Yoruba chant to the Goddess of the sea. I like to invite my singers to call out the qualities of the ocean before we sing it, then invite them feel the flow of the water in their bodies as they move and sing. This chant can be sung in a round.

A traditional chant in the public domain.

Lyrics:

Yemaya oh, ago, ako yo yemaya
Yemaya oh, ago, ako yo yemaya
