Haitian Rara footage circa 1975

Neat vodou ritual footage on Youtube!
From the filmographer:
"I first went to Haiti in 1975 with my husband, Bradford Graves. We went during Holy Week - the days between Holy Sunday and Easter - which is also the time of Rara.
We also were able to attend several vodou ceremonies and were permitted to record.
The vodou ceremony we recorded was released on Folkways - VODUN: RADA RITE FOR ERZULIE - HAITI, Folkways FE 4491. 1976 and now available on Smithsonian Folkways."
