RARA!!


MAMBO SALLIE ANN GLASSMAN’S
MAGICKAL, MYSTICAL
EASTER EVE CELEBRATION

 

 

 

 


“We were a small, but mighty group, all dressed up in red and sequins, with crazy horns and drums!”
Mambo Sallie Ann

Mambo Sallie Ann Glassman and members of La Source Ancienne Ounfo were joined by supporters of the New Orleans Hope and Heritage Project and by friends and well-wishers from out-of-state in the first Rara parade conducted by the Mambo in New Orleans.

“Rara” is shorthand for the parade motto, “Rara retirer d’an Bas d’lo,” which literally translates “to Retrieve from Below the Waters,” and was adopted by Mambo Sallie Ann and other members as a symbol of “singing the city back to life.”

The first of a variety of public events Mambo Sallie Ann is planning this year, the Rara parade started out tentatively and steadily grew in scope and numbers. Though it was only a “small, but mighty group” that set out from the Mambo’s Bywater temple, soon the number was increased by residents and locals who came out of their houses to join in the singing and celebration.

Dressed in costumes and carrying colorful gourds and papier mache horns designed especially for the event by Ms. Jane Clugman, Mambo Sallie Ann and her Ounfo performed fiery Petwo ceremonies to “heat things up” and offered protective baths for those people who were committing to seven year memberships in the Rara. Next the empowered group hit the streets where they sang, danced and did magick at the crossroads along the way in honor of Gede, Bawon Kaflou, and other powerful Petwo Lwas who have stood side by side with the people of New Orleans throughout the post-Katrina rebuilding process. The Rara moved along the riverside, hitting popular local hotspots such as Flora’s, Mimi’s and Schiro’s, and were joined along the way by enthusiastic well-wishers and hangers-on.

“All along the way,” said Mambo Sallie Ann, “people were shouting, ‘Hey! A Rara!” She was pleased that so many people recognized the ritual and the purpose behind it.

“We were all very pleased with how our first RaRa went,” said the Mambo, “and (we) felt that we were present at the inception of something that’s going to become a very special yearly tradition!”

Early on Easter morning, the Mambo led her followers in a ceremony to honor and serve the Rada, or “Benevolent” Lwas, and to awaken them from their Lenten rest.

Long-time friends and supporters of the Mambo and her community events are happy to add these to their list of “reasons to stay home in New Orleans!”

When asked if she would conduct the remainder of her yearly events and rituals in the tradition she had held before Hurricane Katrina, Mambo Sallie Ann replied, “Absolutely! We’re already planning for our St. John’s Eve headwashings on Bayou St. John and at the International House (hotel)!”

As most visitors to Haunted New Orleans Tours know, Mambo Sallie Ann is the predominantly most active Vodoun priestess in the New Orleans area. For devotees and friends alike, this guarantee of continuity from one of the most powerful and calming influences in our community is extremely reassuring.



MAKE PLANS TO ATTEND ONE OR ALL OF MAMBO SALLIE ANN GLASSMAN’S AND LA SOURCE ANCIENNE’S COMMUNITY RITUALS THIS YEAR IN NEW ORLEANS!

THE ANNUAL HEADWASHING IN HONOR OF MARIE LAVEAU WILL TAKE PLACE IN JUNE, COINCIDING WITH THE CELEBRATION OF ST. JOHN’S EVE (ON OR ABOUT THE 23RD). MAMBO SALLIE ANN WILL HOST A TRADITIONAL EVENING HEADWASHING ON THE SHORES OF BAYOU ST. JOHN, IN THE MID-CITY, FOLLOWED BY HER ANNUAL PUBLIC HEADWASHING AT THE INTERNATIONAL HOUSE HOTEL.

MAMBO SALLIE ANN HOSTS AN ANNUAL HURRICANE PROTECTION RITUAL IN HONOR OF THE POWERFUL LWA ERZULIE DANTOR. THIS TIMELY AND MUCH-ANTICIPATED RITUAL IS USUALLY HELD IN JULY.

MAMBO CONTINUES TO HOST REGULAR SATURDAY RITUALS AT HER PERISTYLE TEMPLE IN ROSALIE ALLEY IN THE NEW ORLEANS BYWATER.
