Every January millions of people crowd the seashore to receive the blessings of lemanja, goddess of the sea. All year long in terreiros in Brazil and around the world, Orixa worshipers revel in the divine presence of the living Gods, directly experiencing the sacred energy of the universe. Macumba is a way of life and belief that is followed by 15 million Brazilians, as well as millions more across the Western Hemisphere. Yet it-along with its sister-religions of Vodun, Santeria, and Ifa-remains a little known and largely misunderstood spiritual path. This book is a welcome introduction to a rich and profound tradition whose roots lie in ancient Africa. In a series of interviews, Maria Jose, a Mae de Santo (Mother of the Gods), explains the philosophy and practice of Macumba. She introduces the Orixas, a pantheon of deities who survived the Middle Passage to Brazil along with the African slaves. With humor and grace she describes the essence of Macumba, the divine interaction between humans and living gods, and the spiritual regeneration of its followers. Meet a fascinating Mother of Gods and discover another path to wisdom. Learn to listen to the drumbeat-heartbeat of the mystical universe as it continues to deepen and expand. Sarava Umbanda!

Throughout history, in various cultures, states of ecstatic trance provide a means of gaining spiritual visions and special powers. In Brazil, a large number of Brazilians practiced a secret religion known as Macumba that involved possession of worshipers by their gods. There is an initiation ceremony where the priest decides which god to invoke, and prescribes the appropriate ceremony. During worship, drumming and dance encourage worshipers to go into trance-states in which allows them to open themselves to possession. On coming out of their trance, they usually know nothing of what has happened during the ceremony, but their behavior is often changed. MACUMBA is a paranormal suspense thriller beyond the scope of the current market of paranormal thrillers. It is a story about overcoming personal obstacles, finding love, deceit and the ultimate truth. Set in New Orleans, a young woman, Jade Devlin, must face her inner demons and come to terms with her self-destructive behavior, in order to continue the journey of discovering the truth about her past. A strong male antagonist, Benito Marcellus, enters her life and introduces her to a world she never knew existed, but he has a dark secret that he can share with no one; especially the woman who not only shares his appetite for carnal pleasures, but his passion for power and his determination to achieve it at whatever cost. In exchange for her help in attaining his goal, Benito promises to reveal all the answers to Jade's questions, but in order to find that truth, she must travel to a place where the spirits dwell and all the answers can be found.if one dares to seek them. Jade has nothing to lose and everything to gain, so she faces thefear in her heart and in doing so, discovers the true evil in Benito's soul, as she dives headlong into the ancient Brazilian religion known as MACUMBA.

An expert on Stan Kenton, Sparke delivers a comprehensive history of Kenton's activities as a bandleader and creative force in jazz. Based largely on interviews with Kenton and members of the various incarnations of his orchestra, the book shows how the "Kenton sound" evolved over four decades, focusing on the role that Kenton himself played in that development. While Sparke's style is sometimes a bit florid, his vast knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject is evident throughout the book. Likely to become the standard history of Kenton's orchestra, this book will be enjoyed by any reader interested in the history of big-band jazz. Annotation ♭2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

"The study of worldviews marginalized by mainstream modernity is an eminently important undertaking. It helps us better recognise, cherish and keep the values of traditions and practices that exist. This is important, when the uniform vision of the world heaped on us from the medias, modernist political movements and ideologies, revealed itself as unreal and fake, rendering it evident that the modern utopia of enlightened rationality is just a delirious nightmare."--Arpad Szakolczai, Professor of Sociology, U. College Cork. ***This book fosters dialogue on critical problems faced by endangered indigenous cultures and marginalised communities. The ethos is collaborative and comparative describing the implications for global society of the destruction and impoverishment of human and ecological cultural diversity.
