Orixás: Interview with Pierre Verger

It seems that there are always new treasures on YouTube.  I stumbled upon these jewels – a 1986 documentary on Pierre Verger including interviews with him and Iyalorixás in Bahia.  Most of the documentary is in Spanish, as it was partially filmed in Cuba.  Luckily, there are English subtitles.

These videos offer a unique look inside of Candomblé with an analysis of certain aspects of the religion that are rarely available to English speakers.  In three parts, many questions that you probably didn’t even know you had about Candomblé will be answered.  Enjoy!
