On Dec. 4, the sound of drumming and singing will fill the air across the Caribbean and Latin America, & in neighborhoods here in the States where there are practitioners of African diasporic religious traditions, often called “Santeria; more properly “La Regla de Ocha” or Lukumi

Because forbidden African religious and spiritual practices were masked behind Catholicism during enslavement, African deities were and are still celebrated on specific "saint's days." In the case of Dec. 4, that saint is Saint Barbara, who is the public face of Changó.
