Abstract

Traditional marriage ceremony between Agboeze Constance and Odo Marcellus held at Obiagu Ohom Orba. This recording shows the bride and her maids (unmarried friends, sisters and cousins) dancing with baskets of cooked eggs as they present them to the groom. The eggs symbolize fertility and are later shared with the guests at the celebration.
