||VODUN-RADA RITE FOR ERZULIE
Originally released in 1975.
music presented on this CD represents segments from a four hour
ceremony for Erzulie. Erzulie Freda Dahomey is the goddess of love that
represents man's capacity to dream. The goal of a vodun ceremony is to
honor a loa (spirit) and to summon them for purposes of communication.
The high point of the ceremony is the "possession" of the devotee. He
becomes the voice of the loa, communicating advice, warnings, and
desires to the community.
