Candomblé is na animist religion from parts of Nigeria and Benin, brought to Brazil by enslaved Africans perhaps in the early 19th century. In public or private ceremonies, the believers act out a proximity to natural and ancestral forces. In orthodox candomblé, Iemanjá is the orixá (divinity) of the seawater and considered the mother of other orixás.
