The Yoruba religious beliefs and practices originated in Africa in Nigeria and Benin. This is an ancient culture thousands of years old. Brought to the New World through slavery, it gave birth to Santeria in Cuba. Because of religious persecution, the Yoruba syncretised their religion with Catholicism to form what is now known as Santeria.
This upcoming July, the Avenue 50 Studio will present an art exhibition celebrating the Yoruba traditions known as Santeria. Our exhibition will include visual art, bata drumming, and a lecture on the history and practice of the Yoruba traditions.
