The masked festival Efe/Gelede consists of masquerades, songs and dances in honour of ‘our mothers’, whose power is especially manifest in elderly women, female ancestors and female orisha. The power of ‘our mothers’ has creative as well as destructive expressions, especially in the form of witchcraft.
