2nd Video - Opening Ceremony

This is the continuation of the opening ceremony, where the head of the terreiro asks permission to work with the spirits.

The songs they sing are called "Pontos" and each phalanx has their own pontos; actually, each entity (spirits that come to work through mediums) has his/her own ponto. There are hundres, if not thousands, of pontos, each more beautiful than the following one!
