Pomba Gira (PB) - Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold

£17.00Price

With a full title Pomba Gira and the Quimbanda of Mbumba Nzila, this is the most comprehensive work in the English language on the lady of Quimbanda who is called  Devil's mistress.  The attractions and dangers for both men and women who make cult to her are presented, as are her many faces. Pomba Gira has origins in the witchcraft of Portugal, the Basque Country as well as Congo and the native influences of Brazil. The witchcraft fusion makes her cult particularly accessible to Westerners whose own traditions share much ground with Quimbanda. We walk through the Queendoms of Lyre, Cemetery, Sepulchres, Streets, Crossroads, Wilderness, Soul, Oceanshore and Calunga. Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold studies and practices African and Afro-derived cults in the New World.

Scarlet Imprint, 2011. Softcover, 215 pages.
