Afro Cuban Religion

As Cuban ethnologist Don Fernando Ortiz said, Cuba is an “ajiaco” (a dish with different types of root vegetables and meats) referring to the ethnic mixture on the island composed of Spaniards, indigenous and African. The presence of the Afro-Cuba religions in the nation´s culture is vital, omnipresent and part of the national character. Its influence grows and extends.
