MACUMBA "Macumba" (also known as Quimbanda) is the everyday term used by Brazilians in Rio de Janeiro to describe two types of African spirit worship: Candomble (followed in northern State of Bahia) and Umbanda (a newer form originating in Niteroi, in the southern State of Rio de Janeiro between 1900 and November 15, 1908). Macumba originated with African slaves shipped to Brazil in the 1550's, who continued to worship their African Gods. Their Gods are called ORIXAS. The slaves incorporated...
