Bohio Music Presents: Fèt Gede


 

Tafari Tribe Globe Trade

593 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11225

 

Monvelyno &Riva Nyri Precil invite you to celebrate Gede season, which spans from the end of October through mid November in Haiti, and can be compared to Mexico's Day of the Dead or the Western tradition of Halloween.

Gede spirits are the intermediaries between the living, and the dead. They love to dance a sexually suggestive dance, known as Banda. They are also known for their foul mouths, and their favorite drink, Piman Kleren; a fiery rhum with 21 hot peppers soaked in it. Gede spirits are know for wearing sunglasses, with a missing lens and cover their faces with baby powder. They wear white, black and purple clothing.

Come celebrate the Spirits of Gede with us!!!
