Sacred Funk is a storytelling performance with spoken poetry and mime in phase with music with Afro-beat and funky dance overtones. The Yoruba mystic Orunmila, whose origins are shrouded in myth and legend, performs the first book of poems called Eji Ogbe. Part of a vast compendium within Yoruba oracle, it explores key themes that include: Ancestry, theology, sacrifice, heaven, earth, life and death.
