Nubia House Coverage of the 2011 Osun Osogbo Festival

Osun Osogbo is a globally renown annual festival by Osun people in Osogbo, State of Osun, Nigeria. It is a festival that draws an international attendance of cultural, medical and artistic personage, as well as tourists seeking leisure and fun.

The various aspects of the ceremony that last weeks long and culminate in the Arugba, a virgin, bearing a symbolic calabash of offerings to the river Osun, is rooted in the history of the foundation of Osogbo itself, the encounter of the very founding king with the goddess of the River Osun, and the ensuing covenant. The Osun Osogbo festival, the grove and its arts, was popularised in part owing to the great works of the late Susan Wenger, and has since become a world heritage site.

 Nubia House covered the 2011 festival, unique for its being the first in the Gov. Aregbesola era, staged then with refreshing flourish.

Osun Cuban Pilgrimage

Owing to the historical and cultural connections between the Afro-Cuban nation and the Yoruba, of which Ile-Ife in Osun is their primal descent, in the era of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola, at least two annual pilgrimages were staged to connect the two people and deepen their relationship and understanding; while seeking possible areas of partnership for economic and social growth. The most popular religion in Cuba is a syncretic mixture of Catholicism and Yoruba traditional religion, and it is a passionate way of life of majority of people of African descent there, and has permeated deeply into the Cuban social and cultural milieu.

Nubia House covered these pilgrimages, which were arranged to coincide with the Cuban May Day fiesta, another exciting festival on its own.
