Brazil - Salvador - Tradition - Candomble Mother Saint

Dona Alice, Cambomble mother saint in Salvador. Brazilians in Salvador, Bahia practice Candomble, an African-inspired or Afro-Brazilian religion. Candomble draws inspiration from the African Diaspora, but it mainly features aspects of the religion of the Yoruba Orisha religion. This ceremony was in honor of the Boidadero, in reference to the indians who helped slaves escape slavery. The participants enter into a trance state and assume various forms and costumes depending on the Orisha who has possesses them.
