After three fantastic workshop weekends concentrating on Eleggua, Yemayá and Oyá we go on to explore Oggun and Oshun together with maestro Yorgenis Danger García who keeps blessing us with his visits to Stockholm!  It is truly a great privilege and joy to have him here on a regular basis!

This time beginners and newcomers will have a great opportunity to join in as the first hour both days will be strictly basic with great focus on technique and understanding of rhythm and movement.  It is also a great way to start the day in a nice, easy way for those who are more advanced – going back to the roots and the basics is never wrong, right?

OGGUN – one of the “guerreros” (warriors) together with Eleggua, Ochosi and Osun. He is master of all metals and minerals, in particular iron, and inventor of tools, weapons and technology. He lives in the wilderness and forested areas of the world, and is often portrayed as a solitary blacksmith or ironmonger or a fierceful warrior. His colours are green and black. He has a violent and brusque nature, but he also has a more peaceful side. Oggún is the patron of all those who work with metal, mechanics, engineers, policemen, soldiers, surgeons.

OSHUN  – the mistress of all rivers and sweet waters. Her colours are yellow and gold. Her nature is seductive and sensual and she represents love, joy and sexuality. Her main attribute is a fan and she loves honey, which she uses to attract and seduce, together with her captivating laughter. But don’t be mistaken, she is a powerful orisha and can be vindictive when crossed!
