[ Index of Vodoun Drum Rhythms & Dances ]

 

It is in the dance that Vodoun touches most closely to the mystical, for every motion that the dancer performs is a magical metaphor for the invisible world, and it is no wonder that spirits arrive most often during the dance. For the divine recognizes itself and is drawn into the eternal movement of the dance.
