ART EXHIBIT: ORISHAS: YORUBAS IN AMERICA

Emiliano’s Café

The exhibition is a multimedia show combining acrylic paints and silkscreen prints by talented artists Jorge, Juan and José Ibañez.

The word Yoruba describes both a language and a tribe living across Nigeria and the Popular Republic of Benin, in an area of forest and savannah. Their origins can be traced back to the end of the first millennium like the civilization of Ife.

An Orisha (also spelled Orisa or Orixa) is a spirit or deity that reflects one of the manifestations of Olodumare (God, also known as Olorun) in the Yoruba spiritual or religious system. This religion has found its way throughout the world and is now expressed in practices as varied asCandomble, Lucumi/Santeria, and other practices throughout the Caribbean. Orisha communities and lineages can be found in parts of Europe and Asia aswell. While estimates may vary, some scholars believe that there could be more than 100 million adherents of this spiritual tradition worldwide.

The Yoruba, imported as slaves into all the colonies of the Caribbean, brought with them their traditions, music, art, foods and believes. The Orishas are today ambassadors, like last standing Caribbean Yorubas, guardians of the rich African heritage that is a central part of the Caribbean culture.
