Brazil - Salvador - Tradition - Candomble

A mother saint embraces a member of her Candomble practice as she receives an Orisha spirit into her body. 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.
