Nicholaj De Mattos Frisvold on Brazil’s Quimbanda Tradition

Here’s an interesting article about Brazil’s Quimbanda tradition written by  Nicholaj De Mattos Frisvold. At the outset it explains:

“When we speak of initiation in the perspective of Quimbanda we are speaking of a true and intense merging with spirit that involves a pact/agreement, a spirit vessel (assentamento), ordeal and oath. There are elements used in this process that are common to every house/terreiro/cabula/lineage of Quimbanda that reveals a common origin. There are different varieties of Quimbanda in Brazil, and the expression of the common root, will always depend of the constellation of spirits we find in the tronco. In other words, a ‘Casa de Exu’ that is dominated by Exu Mor, Exu Morcego and Pomba Gira Maria Padilha will most likely express itself differently from a ‘Casa de Exu’ where we find Exu Lucifer, Exu Tranca Ruas and Pomba Gira Cigana taking dominant positions.”
