Santeria, A West African Mystical Religion in Cuba

A wonderful chat with Justtina Escandon a practitioner of Santeria, a West African rooted traditional religion that was brought over to Cuba through the slave trade and preserved through the merging with Catholicism. I had a great experience in Cuba with a Santera which I share in the interview. According to Migene Gonzalez-Wippler's book Santeria The Religion, Santeria - a blend of primitive magic and Catholicism, is now practiced by an estimated five million Hispanic Americans.
