Oya, Oshun and Yemaya. Performance of living energy.

Coming Soon, the Choir I direct “The London Lucumi Choir” is involved in an amazing Event on the 8th May in South of the river in Brixton, London. The evening is dedicated to the three major female  Orishas Oya, Yemaya and Oshun. The evening is part of a festival called Survival Guides Survival Guides. 1-14 May 2014  which is hosting a multitude of interesting talks, workshops, films. The reason why I am so excited about the evening is that we are collaborating with Spoken Word and Visual Artist, Jacob V Joyce; Contemporary dancers, Hannah Anderson-Ricketts and Ffion Campbell-Davies and Yolanda Perez formally…

OYA: RISE OF THE ORISHA

“ I am annoyed as other people are at the misrepresentation of African Traditional Religions. I think it speaks to the world rebranding what we stand for and who we are as a people” …. “ It is my goal to…. provide something different that is informed by the actual people” (who practice the religion). “The journey of the film has been crazy” Nosa explains. “Some people involved in the film dropped out because they were worried about being stigmatised. These people are Nigerians themselves” ….. “I am trying to connect with people so please get in contact. The short is coming out in May but the feature film will be layered and deep and I welcome all of your input”
