December 4th is the traditional feast day for the Orisha Chango in the La Regla Lucumi, also known as Santeria tradition. Chango is sometimes associated with Santa Barbara whose feast day is also celebrated on December 4th. Chango is the Lord of fire, drumming, thunder and passion. His movements are swift and his song is strong.

 

Lazaro Ros is one of the most famous Santeria musicians of all time. His moving praise songs for Chango can be heard here:

In this Cuban Bata Drum Ceremony you can witness the ritual movements of Chango as he swings his double sided axe.

In Argentina the Ile Obatala Drum Ceremony for Chango features the traditional call and response and rhythm for this Orisha. Unfortunately, the sound is a bit distorted.

 

In Nigeria the Yoruba celebrate this King with a Shango Festival. Visitors travel from all over the world to honor this divine  King.
