African slaves who were forced to work for the spanish, speak spanish and accept chrianity. So the slaves gave their african gods the names of christian saints and then continued to worship them in their native language. *tricky, tricky!* This form of worship is called SANTERIA. Santeria saved many African religious rituals and musical stuff. Santeria is the Yoruba religion from Nigeria and it survived in Cuba.
Santeria is still practiced today.
Its also an awesome song by Sublime
I don't practice Santeria
I ain't got no crystal ball,
Well I had a million dollars but I, I'd spend it all
If I could find that heina and that sancho that she'd found.... etc etc.
