"A STORY IS AN EPHEMERAL THING THAT ONLY TRULY EXISTS
AT THE MOMENT OF IT’S TELLING... IT COMES FROM THE TELLER ALIVE
AND HAS A FRESH LIFE WHICH EACH TELLING."
Babalosa Obalorun Temujin Ekùnféo (Temujin The Storyteller),
Was initiated as a priset of the Orisa Aganju in1978 by Afro Cubans and African Americans as a Priest (Babalosa) in the Lukumi Yoruba tradition. The Lukumi branch of the Yoruba spiritual tradition was established in Cuba by captives brought to Cuba during the days of the slave trade. Temujin has performed throughout the country since 1968. His list of talents includes lecturer, workshop developer, musician, and instrument maker. As both a scholar and performer of African culture Temujin feels a strong commitment to researching African Folklore from the Americas as well as from the continent of Africa and shares it by means of family oriented, audience participatory storytelling programs and experiential "Playshops" for youths and adults.  All of this is done in the ancient tradition  of the "Itinerate African Bard" hailing crowds with his talking drum.
