What you'll do
We will visit a house during one of the most anticipated celebration to all the initiated in the afro-cuban religion, el cumpleaños de Santo (the Saint´s birthday). We will get to know more about the preparation surrounding these festivities and the places where we can find the characteristic items used by the practitioners in their religious life. Also, if the date allow us, we will get to experience a procession of the Day of the Saint, for example: the day of the Virgin of Regla and the day of the Virgin of the Mercedes. All these events take place on rare occasions and they are specially celebrated, they are an unique opportunity to share and discover a community of believes, dances and chants.
I grew up here, in Regla. I’m belong to a family of religious in Regla de Ocha or Cuban’s Santeria for more than 20 years.I practice the afrocuban religion since I was a child and I've grown up between its traditions and ceremonies. I spend a great time inviting foreign to my particular village because I believe that it has wonderful attributes to share.
