Papa Legba Video Preview

“Papa Legba is an ode to vodou’s guardian at the gate of the crossroads, he’s the spirit who you go through to get the other spirits. I was thinking about the Middle Passage, where thousands of people were thrown into the sea, and that comes into Haitian vodou because they believe there’s an underground paradise where all these people went to. So it’s all about crossing this boundary into other realities and asking to pass through a cosmic divide.” Nwando Ebizie, aka Lady Vendredi.

Directed by Richie Simkins.

From the Soundtrack to The Passion of Lady Vendredi at Soho Theatre until 30th April.

EP out now on Bandcamp.
