Rulers of the forces of nature's elements, the Orixás each embody distinct qualities. As a rule, there are 16 main deities worshiped by followers of the Candomblé culture in Brazil, which is an adapted version of african Yoruba/Voodoo culture. The Orixá EP delivers three chants, modulated and mixed for the global dancefloors by Cohuna Beatz to celebrate some of these powerful archetypes plus a deep electro mix of 'Ogun'
Ogun (pronounced Ogún) is the inventor of spiritual festivals.
Ogun is a spirit that appears in several African cultures. He invented an event that serves as the core of the Olojo Festival and that is the celebration of the remembrance of 'Ogun', master of Iron, who is believed to be the first son of Oduduwa, progenitor of the Yoruba people.
In the Yoruba community, Ogun reflects the Orisha of iron, minerals, forests, keys, prisons, and tools, and thus represents the patron of blacksmiths, mechanics, engineers, and soldiers.
In the voodoo culture, the same name denotes a spirit (loa) who is the patron of blacksmiths.
Exu (pronounced Exú) is the natural principle of everything; it is the beginning, the starting point, the birth, the power of creation. The balance of the universe is negative, without giving the connotation of evil in this case. Exu is the first step, is the initial life-producing cell. It is the being that generates the infinite, the firstborn, lord of the paths, of the streets, who grants and forbids entrances.
Emanjah (pronounced Yemanjá) is female master (Orisha / Orixá) of the sea and motherhood in the culture of the Yoruba, in the Cuban Santeria and in the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé and Umbanda. She is therefore often depicted as a water woman, and represents e.g. B. in Brazil the salt water of the sea, in Nigeria she is a river goddess in the state of Ogun.
She is the mother of all humanity, like Obá she is the keeper of the home and patron saint of seafarers. Great festivities in her honor are celebrated on the seashore in Brazil. To thank her, to make wishes to her or to pay homage to her, flowers, scents or other small gifts are traditionally given to the sea in Brazil. Either you entrust the offerings to the waves on the seashore, or you go out in a boat and put them in the water.
