The Axis Percussion Trio continue to take the music of The Orishas to various locations around the UK that have a connection to the Orishas. Orishas are the personifcations of the natural forces and energies that impact on our lives.
The toque that the trio has most recently filmed is for Babaluaye, the orisha syncretised with San Lazaro. Babaluaye is the orisha that is venerated in the hope of being cured from disease. The trio journeyed to Burton Lazars in Leicestershire where there exists the earth work remains of an old leper hospital dedicated to Saint Lazarus. Two toques for Babaluaye were filmed here. These should be available to view before Christmas.
