  • Cuban Orishas – Performance

    Sat. 17 October 2009 | 8:00 - 10:00 PM

    Add to calendar

    Santería is a vibrant religious tradition, the result of centuries of contact in Cuba between European Catholic elements and traditional African, Yoruba religion.

    This performance, with former members of the acclaimed Cuban dance group Danza Libre, will present aspects of Santería worship alongside some of the stories of the Orishas (Yoruba deities syncretised with Catholic Saints) and their exhilarating songs, rhythms and dances.

    Earlier in the day you can take part in drum and dance workshops, join in a lively discussion about the religion, and enjoy an international dinner party. Those who attend the workshops have the chance to take part in the evening’s performance.
