Caribbean

In Regla de Ochá, an Afro-Cuban religion rooted in West African cosmology, religious dancers and drummers bring the orishas—gods—to life through folkloric dance and ritual. In the Casa del Caribe, a religious dancer breathes fire while he dances and embodies Changó, the orisha of fire, thunder, and dance. Photographs: Britt Basel
