Dancing feet planted firmly on the compounds soil
Gracefully gliding through space
Secular to ceremonial
Undulations, Ripples, Accentuated Spines
Heads covered in White
Honoring spirit through DANCE- a crucial role in the African way of life.
It is true! We each have a twin in Africa. The priestess in the center (photos forthcoming) has a striking resemblance to Taraji P. Henson! You know those eyes!
The pronounced cheekbones, and she had the nerve to have on lashes, okay?
The swag and slayage is here in these temples too!
Yass, Queen(s) come through!
If you’ve taken a Haitian dance class, you will feel this!
THIS is the ROOT.
Continuously inspired by my Beninese people. This country, the rituals, the reverence for the divinities, the knowledge and information that I’m learning by watching. Receiving by participation. Actively seeking, engaging, connecting.
Vodou is open, it’s free.
