A "revenant" (spirit returning from the dead) performs a dance during the yearly festival of traditional religions every January 10th in Ouidah (Benin, West-Africa), regarded as the birthplace of Voodoo.

The revenant, is dressed in a flowing sequined mantel which he can start spinning around his neck using some very energetic dance moves
