Cheraé talks with Zana Masombuka, Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin, Ehime Ora, and Nzinga Metzger about spirituality and ancestral traditions that can drive us all forward.
In our ongoing examination of spirituality beyond the western gaze we look at the intersection of art and ancestral practice as intertwined forms for existing and the development of self. Our speakers hail from Ghana, South Africa, and Nigeria and range from a practicing diviner and astrologist, to an art curator and cultural commentator, to a visual artist and cultural anthropologist.
