Umbanda

umbanda

Nobody knows where Umbanda has been created, but it´s usual to find these rites in Bahia - Brazil at places called "terreiros".

This religion is about entities´ veneration to bring us protection, health, luck, peace and good vibrations. Dancing, singing and smoking are part of atmosphere to call those spirits.

The smell of cigar, the colorful tones, the lyrics and the candle light bring us a unique deep mood.
