Laura Klugherz and Steven Heyman in Akin Euba's 'Six Yoruba Folksongs' at Colgate U. Dec. 5

[Akin Euba]

Yesterday we wrote that Prof. Laura Klugherz of Colgate University and Associate Prof. Steven Heyman of Syracuse University will be performing a program of works composed by several composers, including the Nigerian composer Akin Euba (b. 1935), in a free concert at Colgate University on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010.

AfriClassical sent the post to Prof. Klugherz and asked her what music of Akin Euba is on tomorrow's program. She kindly replied: “Thank you for the note! We will be performing Six Yoruba Folksongs, in an arrangement for viola and piano.”

Akin Euba is profiled at His page includes a Works List compiled by Prof. Dominique-René de Lerma. The entry on 6 Yoruba Folksongs reads, in part, as follows:

6 Yoruba folksongs, for voice & piano... 1. Mo lè jiyán yo; 2. Òré méta; 3. Mo já wé gbé gbé; 4. Omo jòwó; 5. Agbe; Ó se gbé na?”

I am looking to obtain a copy of Akin Euba's 'Six Yoruba Folksongs'. Does any one know where I can get hold of a copy.
