Orisha devotees worldwide are already in preparation for this year’s World Ifa Festival be held in Ile Ife, Osun State, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Among the impacts made on the Caribbean and the Americas as a direct consequence of the immoral, unethical and infamous Trans Atlantic Slave Trade was/is the infusion of African rhythms as part of the basic repertoire of current Caribbean musicians. The impact was so effective the infusion of these rhythms now manifest almost as second nature to many Caribbean and American muscians.
Today as I reflect and prepare for World Ifa Festival, I give thanks to the POWER OF OUR ANCESTORS TO MANIFEST AS WORLD AND CARIBBEAN MUSIC.
I give thanks that the sacred poetry of IFA is now considered World Heritage and Literature worthy to be taught in higher institutions of learning.
May World Ifa Festival meet with great success.
