Ilé Tüntun visits Matanzas, 2013

In July 2013, Frank Cabrera-Suarez "Obeché" organized a trip to Matanzas city along with two Egungun body-masks and batá drums in order to greet Ifá practioners. They visited the 'ilé' (house) of Jorge-Luis León-Marrero in the barrio of Pueblo Nuevo, Matanzas -- he is a local representative of the Ilé Tüntun movement to realign Cuban Ifá practice with that of West Africa. The many followers of Ifá in Matanzas went prostrate in the street in reverence for the Egungun masks that represent important ancestors within the Ifá practice in Cuba.
