A Little Bit of Backstory

This Voodoo Bash experience will expose you to new and fascinating things, but before you arrive, here is some extra information on Papa Legba, the Loa, and Papa’s most fervent and famous Voodoo Queen, Marie Leveau.

Papa Legba- played by Donnell Goss is the Loa who serves as the intermediary between the other Loa and humanity. He stands at a spiritual crossroads and gives (or denies) permission to speak with the spirits of Guinee, and is believed to speak all human languages. Legba facilitates communication, speech, and understanding.

Marie Leveau-played by LaDios Muhammad is a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, and renowned in New Orleans. Marie is often called the greatest Voodoo Queen who ever lived, and had great influence over her following. Marie had a pet snake called Li Grande Zombi named after one of her beloved Loa of great stature.

Loa are the spirits of Voodoo. They are also referred to as Mystères and the Invisibles and are intermediaries between Bondye—the Supreme Creator, who is distant from the world—and humanity. Unlike saints or angels however, they are not simply prayed to, they are served. They are each distinct beings with their own personal likes and dislikes, distinct sacred rhythms, songs, dances, ritual symbols, and special modes of service. Papa Legba has invited two special Loa to his event, Erzulie, and Baron Samedi.

Erzulie-played by Krystal Jackson is the Loa of love, beauty, jewelry, dancing, luxury, and flowers. She wears three wedding rings, one for each husband and her symbol is a heart, her colors are pink, blue, white and gold, and her favorite sacrifices include jewelry, perfume, sweet cakes and liqueurs. She enjoys the game of flirtation and seduces people without distinguishing between sexes.

Baron Samedi- played by George Johnson is a Loa of the dead, and is the head of the Guédé family of Loa. He has a love for disruption, obscenity, debauchery, and having a particular fondness for tobacco and rum infused with hot peppers. Additionally, he is the Loa of resurrection, and in the latter capacity he is often called upon for healing by those near or approaching death, as it is only Baron who can accept an individual into the realm of the dead. He is notorious for his outrageous behavior, swearing continuously and making filthy jokes to the other spirits. He loves smoking and drinking and is rarely seen without a cigar in his mouth or a glass of rum in his bony fingers.
