We’re back! After a long break due to the covid-19 pandemic it is our huge pleasure to welcome Yorgenis Danger García, “Yoyo”, back to Stockholm!  

On Friday we start with salsa con afro, to get in the right mood, have fun and enjoy the opportunity to be able to dance together again! (Respecting the recommendations, of course!)

Saturday we start with an hour’s tecnique and musicality, to warm up those afro muscles again! The rest of the day we dedicate to the orishas – summing up what we did last time with Oggun, repeating and continuing with Oshun and then moving on to Shango, king of drums and dancing!

Sunday we go on with Oshun, she is the orisha with most changes in music, toques and songs, so there is a lot to learn! After that soft and sweet beginning we throw in some energetic palo – because we love palo, right? We finish the day with Shango.

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 also 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!

SHANGO – A king and a leader, proud and dominant. He represents male beauty, virility and masculinity. He is the master of fire, thunder and lightning and war, but also music, drumming and dancing. His colours are red and white and his attribute a two-edged axe.
