Voodoo

Just outside Port-au-Prince, Stefan gets invited to a voodoo ceremony.

Voodoo has been practised in Haiti for nearly 300 years, but it was only recognised as an official religion in 2003.

Rhythm and dancing send worshippers into a trance-like state where they are at one with the spirit world. A goat is sacrificed as an offering to the gods, which they believe will charge the spirits with enough energy to possess the worshipers.
