Yoruba culture and tradition at the heart of Olorum Festival in Cuba

Camagüey, Cuba, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) The Olorum Festival in this patrimonial city serves today to procure the best of the spirituality coming from the Afro-Caribbean traditions, and this was felt by members of the Yoruba Cultural Association of Cuba.

Precisely, Mateo Molina, Awo Orunmila Otura Sa, in the ranks of the Council of Elders of Cuba of the National Association, made reference to the good vibes that the folkloric appointment brings along.

Her words before those attending in the patrimonial Plaza de los Trabajadores, attested to the hope of the community with ancestry in African and Caribbean traditions in the very spirituality of the Olorum Festival.

Toque de tambores batá drums distinguished the stage performed by the Camagüey Folkloric Ballet and choirs of members of the National Folkloric Ensemble.

The Olorum, a celebration of music and dance traditions, is focused on the most sacred aspects of the African diaspora that brought slaves from that continent exploited since the 16th century.

The path that began 22 years ago to defend the homeland, that’s why it came with Olorum.

Here we are friends and brothers, for four days of understanding and love that our country needs.

And sing the great songs that give us the blessing’, said the day before Reynaldo Echemendía, president of the Organizing Committee of an event that will conclude on September 17.
