The player of drums is better known as “Ogan” withinin the Church of Camdomble!

I will talk about Candomble Bantu , or as it is commonly known, Candomble Angola .
In Candomble Angola, the “Ogan” is also known as: Kambondo

But to get to this level of Kambondo, the drummer goes through a learning process, each with their own duties and role. After going through this learning process, he will be called: Tata Kambondo.

What is a “Ogan” or Kambondo within the Candomble?

A: Ogan is a kind of male priest in charge of playing the “drums”
and singing to the Orixas.

But the “Ogan” is divided in various functions within the Church of Candomble.
We’ll be discussing Ogan OR Kambondo in more depth on our next conversation here on the site: Chuch of Candomble
