Baba Shango, as midnight approaches the drums begin to beat and your celebrations continue. I say continue for they began with our first breath and will continue through every moment that makes our mortal lives and subsequently transcends into our spiritual ones.
On this day, countless individuals come together and draw from the strength and fortitude that is your ashe and with you as their guide, strategies for all that they wish to enjoy in their mortal lives are created.
Baba Shango, the music plays today and always for you are both our rhythm and our rumba. It is you who allows each step we take to set the stage that promotes our progress… we need only be passionate in our performance.
Mi querido Shango… Baba Mi… KABIEOSILE!!!! Ashe! Ashe! Ashe-O!
