So half the world's deejays are busying themselves with spitting out playlists every few minutes. What could the CAS offer that was different and inspiring? The idea suddenly dawned on us. We had stumbled upon an orisha responsible for all illness: Obaluaiê. A bit of further reading and we realize that he masters epidemic deseases in particular! But not all is doom and gloom about the deity. As a friend puts it: by making one aware of their inescapable death, Obaluaiê makes you behave more responsibly in this life.
The fact that he is not one of the "pop-star" orishas means that we only found top quality information about him, making for a top quality show: music- and content-wise. Though we never tire to state that we are not experts, our friends who are seem to have approved. So listen in for all the interesting narratives about this fascinating character in the African-Brazilian mythology. More interesting trivia and videos below.
One of the most celebrated supernatural entities in Brazilian culture is Saint George AKA São Jorge, Ogum or Oxossi in Brazil and Sant Jordi in Catalonia.
The guy is not even a saint anymore, but in his day (23 of April) the chap is celebrated in many places around the globe (yes, the globe IS round).
He is at the same time the patron saint of cavalry and police, but he is also patron saint criminals and drug dealers; in some parts of Brazil he is Ogum, in others he is Oxossi; some says he is Turkish, others say he is Palestinian, but now we discovered that yet others say that in reality he is Egyptian!
Confused? Popular culture is confusing ! ...
