Kevin Osepa revisits his childhood memories to investigate how Afro-Caribbean spirituality has informed his life.
He was born on the island of Curaçao, in an environment where, despite being taboo, rituals and magical thinking played an important role. The spiritual practices of ‘Brua’ and ‘Las 21 Divisiones’, which some of his relatives were secretly engaged in, aroused his curiosity. These syncretic religions were born from a fusion of Catholic, African, and Indian influences. Duality often plays a vital role, as saints and spirits have powers that can be summoned foor good or evil. To keep forces in balance, there are a range of commandments and rituals for cleansing and protection.
