Oya is the powerful Yorùbá Orisha of the winds and tempests. She is considered either the sister of the Orisha of storms Shango, or one of His three wives, with Oshun and Oba. She is a fierce protector of women who uses her machete to clear the dead wood path and make way for the new. We look at her various aspects in this week’s podcast. (Note: There were some sound issues with the original file, you may have to turn this one up slightly…).
