Yoruba House Project is Orisha Ordained
Okanran, ki i bale ko ma se (Okanran, always come to past)
As spring approaches, preparations are on the way to return to Osooro land, Okitipupa, Ondo State, Nigeria in May 2010 to celebrate the Orishas amongst my people in Ikale land.
The year 2009 had been blessed with the opportunity to meet and liase with many different Awos and Iyalorishas accros the world…Ifa’s words of wisdom came through with the opportunity to visit Trinidad and Tobago in August to perform at The Trinidad Tobago Muhtadi International Drumming Festival and to celebrate the Orishas.
This year 2010, I will be honouring the Orishas: Orunmila (Ifa), Eshu, Egungun and Ogun again with seperate feast in Igbotako, Osooro, Ondo State, Ayila, Ogun Waterside, Ogun State and Epetedo, in Lagos Island, Lagos State, Nigeria; these are my annual Orisha celebrations.
Travelling back to Yoruba land provides the opportunity to appease the Orishas properly and to harness the right plants and ingredients for medicine needed to care for orishas’ children in the new world.
The task of preparing a home for the Orishas in Canada is being blessed and we are moving ahead steadfastly. Our Mission of preserving Yoruba heritage just as our ancestors had in the past is continuing. We are educating and blessing the children of ODUA both at home in Africa and in the diaspora with the ways needed to live fulfilling lives on earth as this is my calling as an Awolorisha.
In 2009, we presented sacred events and workshops, showered ancestral blessings on communities with Egungun dances at festivals and harvest celebrations. We taught Yoruba drumming and chants to the Orishas. We also invited Awos and shared sacred IFA divinations with our constituents.
In 2010, we are inviting Olaiwola Ishola Sakara Group to accompany us in presentations, events and cultural education workshops as we launch our Yoruba House Project 2010. Olaiwola will be coming to Canada with Orisha Egungun, Igunnu, Adamu Orisha (Eyo) and Angere. He will also be coming to teach the art of playing Sakara, Gangan and Goje to ODUA’s children in the new world…
If you are interested in hosting or supporting our efforts, please invite us to perform at your celebrations and experience Orisha magic and blessings. We facilitate workshops on understanding the ways of the Orishas, perform libations and prayers to ancestors with Egungun. We also perform initiation to Awo Egungun, teach the techniques of Yoruba drumming, songs and chants to the Orishas and Yoruba languge, please contact:
