Feast of the Iyabas

The end of the year marks a special time for celebration in most terreiros.  The female Orixás, Iyabas, are honored with a public feast.  Here are some videos showing the rum (hoom – the segment of the feast where the Orixá dances to their songs telling their story) of the Iyabas.  Enjoy!
