The secret of iyas


Alidou, a musician from Benin, wonders about the Gèlèdè rite. He goes to Sagon, a Voodooist village in Benin, to the heart of a society ordered by a woman called Iyalashè. Sharing the daily life of the villagers, he goes from meeting to meeting as he attempts to gain insight into these beliefs maintained by The Iyas. After his initiation he participates in a rare and exceptional ceremony and by the end of his quest comes to realise the guiding and unifying role of the Gèlèdè cult.
