Event description

Description


Scholar, musician and Priest of Obatala Baba John Mason traces the journey of the Orisha Chango from its roots in the ancient kingdom of Oyo today Nigeria, West Africa to the Americas.


Chango, the concept of male warrior energy, traveled to the Americas in the bodies of enslaved Africans and was installed in the bodies of African descendants in Brazil, Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, Dominican Republic and other geographic areas.


Today, African descendants throughout the Americas and the rest of the globe continue to honor the power of thunder and lightning that Chango represents in nature.


Join us as we also celebrate this popular Orisha.
