Percussionist and tres player Sekou Heath with his first music video from his debut experimental solo Latin Jazz CD - Portofino (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/sekouheath ). Awó la Ikú roughly translates as "The Mysteries of Death" in Lucumi - a Cuban dialect of the Nigerian Yoruba language. The video examines the universality of time, existence, and human culture, and features dancer choreographer Judith Justiz and actress Silvana Mangano, and also has Katherine Dunham, and reputedly, rare old footage of Francisco Aguabella, and possibly Julito Collazo.
