Presented Tue. Jan. 17th, 2016 8pm EST on Para-X-Radio.com

Andrieh Vitimus and Jason M. Colwell welcome Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold back to the show to discuss his newest book Ifá: A Forest of Mystery.

Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold is an anthropologist and psychologist who over the course of the last fifteen years been studying, both academically and practically, African and Afro-derived cults in the New World. This has led to a multiplicity of initiations into Vodou, both from Benin and Haiti, Santeria, Kimbanda, Palo Mayombe and Ifá. He makes part of the council of elders in the Ogboni society of Abeokuta, Nigeria. Nick is a Babalawo and a member of Ogboni society.

He has for the last decade lived in Brazil where his studies and involvement in traditional forms of metaphysics, faith, cult and witchcraft is a constant theme in his life. He is also author of:

Pomba Gira & the Quimbanda of Mbumba Nzila, a study of the Devil’s Mistress in Quimbanda.

Exu & the Quimbanda of Night and Fire, the strong companion to Pomba Gira and together with her this forms the most complete account of this sorcerous cult. Exu is the fusion of Umbanda, Angolan sorcery and European demonology, erupting in a uniquely Brazilian cult of practical magical action. Spells, workings, hierarchies and origins are all given in detail.

Palo Mayombe: The Garden of Blood and Bones, an initiates account of this much maligned religion and cult whose central nigromantic mystery is the prenda, the cauldron containing the human skull or bones, reanimated by living spirit.
