Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti



I first saw Divine Horsemen a few years ago while it served as the silent backdrop for Mos Def at the 9:30 Club. For some reason, I woke up thinking about it this morning. I've yet to find a full length version online, but this clip is quite potent.
It is beautiful to see human beings go up in worship together. From Benin Africa where Vodoun/voodoo originated, traveling with the blessed slaves to the shores of Haiti with the guidance of Papa Legba (Vodoun spirit of guidance/gatekeeper) and on upward to Louisiana where the traditions still thrive today.
The Creator bless
