New York-based ensemble, Ologund put on an eclectic Afro-Brazilian performance yesterday in the Shapiro Campus Center Atrium. This is just one of many events this weekend for the 8-15-member group.Their performances combine multiple elements, which arose from the African experience of slavery in Brazil and the ritual practices of Bahia, the center of Afro-Brazilian culture. Ologund is a Yoruba word that means in English “the warrior has arrived.”
