Listen to this short clip (in French / Kréyol) of a sermon given at a Vodou temple in Port-au-Prince in Haiti. The sermon was given by the Houngan (priest) Samba’el (aka Elien Isac). The temple is named Cécile after the Mambo (vodou priestess) Cécile Fatiman who presided over the 1791 ceremony at Bois Caïman which launched the first slave insurrection of the Haitian Revolution. Recorded by Audra A. Diptee with permission of the Houngan.
