Reviews of Afro-Cuban Religions

“Director of the Fernando Ortiz Foundation in Havana, Cuba, and author of Biography of a Runaway Slave, Barnet explores the mythology and practices of Afro-Cuban religious movements. He illuminates the complex pantheon of deities worshipped in each tradition and examines the rituals, music, and dance of each in a clear, straightforward manner. He also compares and contrasts Cuban practices with those in the African homelands and other religions.”
