i actually went in search of a gospel station on live365.com this morning. ha!
a few months ago, someone on myspace mentioned the caravan to the ancestors in galveston, texas. apparently there were some christian songs sung during the procession, and one of the organizers said something like, "before all you ultra-orisha people get upset, you know your grandmother prayed for you at so & so baptist church..."
at just about every ancestor event i've been to, i've heard at least one spiritual sung, often at the urging of the egungun themselves.
remember: those before us coded the language of western scripture and used it to their advantage. it took generations' worth of removal from africa before they fully bought in to the white man's faith, forgetting the symbols and signs.
before that, spirituals were musical morse code, and the bible--for many--was an odu of liberation.
just a thought.
y'all be cool.
