The Orichas of Santeria

Dear All,

I am working on the artwork of what if? and I need the help of the community.

As I have mentioned in my blog post “Slices of Life” I am composing and putting the texts and images for the multimedia show together that is part of this art project. Today, I am working on “I am a Priest” again trying to put together a video that goes along with this music.
Santeria is a religion that blends Catholicism with rituals and traditions originally coming from the religion Yoruba. This tradition was brought to Cuba by slaves from Africa.

For my video I would like to blend Catholic motives with images or movies of the orichas, the gods of the religion Santeria. Here an example of a Catholic motive I filmed yesterday on the island Pag in Croatia.

And here is where the what if?-community comes in. I was wondering if there is maybe somebody among our community, who has traveled Cuba  has captured images or little film sequences of the Orichas or the practice of Santeria and would be willing to share it with me for this artwork. Of course, I will credit you.

You can contact me via the comment section or via barbara.lueneburg@kug.ac.at

Thank you very much for your help,

Barbara
