Yemanjá Party, Salvador and Cachoeira, Bahía, Brazil, shot on February 2013.(BEING PRODUCED)
Each 2nd of February the whole Brazil honours Yemanjá, the Orixá of that lives and rules among the sea waters. Starting with the thanksgiving to Oxúm, her sister
goddess of the Sweet Waters (the rivers), Vovó ́s fishermen family leads us to the ecstatic bay of Rio Vermelho and Cachoeira, the main spots of the believers ́congregation.
This all takes place to the accompaniment of wandering troupes of drummers, street capoeira, and general merriment and abandon. As the day wears on the festa becomes more and more carnivalesque -- thousands of people pouring in -- inexorably evolving into a dancing, surging street party of gargantuan proportions.
