about

Dedicated to Jai Prakasha and Milton Cardona

Verses are from a Cuban Santeria prayer to Xango, known as the Orixa of Thunder and Lightning. Translation from Yoruba, a West African language and religion that survived the middle passage of the slave trade.

lyrics

"We call on the God of the Earth, asking for connection.
We pay respect to Oshun, goddess of the sweet waters.
We ask permission from Elegua, keeper of the crossroads. May it be so!
The king (Xango) is not dead!"
