ΥΕΜΑΥΑ είναι η γυναικεία Θεότητα του Ωκεανού, που οι πιστοί της τιμούν ως μητέρα των πάντων.

Η λατρείας της από την Αφρική πέρασε στη Βραζιλία και από κει σε Αϊτή και Κούβα.

Ο mastermind των Irakere, Chucho Valdes, από την άλλη, είναι ένας απλός …θεός του πιάνου.

ΥΕΜΑΥΑ is a female divinity of the Ocean, her devotees worship her as a mother spirit and mother of all things.

Her worship originated from Africa and from there in Brazil, Haiti and Cuba.

Chucho Valdes, Irakere mastermind, on the other hand, is a simple …piano god.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need Translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
