Musical Energies Encapture Power <br /><br />

Many musicians, particularly Dr. John (who took his stage name from John "Dr. John" Montenet, an African Voodoo priest who practiced in Congo Square in the 1800s), include references to gris-gris (one of the "magic" charms of voodoo), voodoo priestesses and practices. <br /><br />

Many remedies common in the Mississippi Delta are based on traditional voodoo, and were popularized and immortalized in blues songs -- take John the Conqueror Root for success in any endeavor, sprinkle Goofer dust in the path of enemies, or carry a black cat bone for good fortune.<br /><br />

Gris-gris bags, small pouches filled with a combination of herbs mixed in a proportion that is thought to bring about a desired result for the carrier, are not at all an uncommon sight on the belts of New Orleanians.<br /><br />

While many people dismiss voodoo as a cult or superstition, an equal number of residents truly believe in its powers and warn non-believers not to take voodoo lightly, or suffer the consequences. Ceremonies are still held in New Orleans, and various shops sell powders, oils, candles and voodoo dolls.<br /><br />

But despite the apparent commercialization of these ancient practices, time and modernization have done nothing to diminish their power --- this piece was brought forth as an awareness item from a shrew who carried it in her gris-gris bag.<br /><br />

The piece holds the energies that she has collected by being around the cult powers and energies that have correlated over time. Many secrets of voodoo magic and power were buried in lyrics to songs and the shrew had a good ear for the twist in words that were used time and time again; she used these secrets in the music to unlock the strength in the power of the occult. Each message in the songs were like a puzzle piece that she merged together, over time, to bring forth a collection of powerful energies and mystic abilities.<br /><br />

This is a true emblem of voodooism that holds extreme powers that stretch over centuries of time.<br /><br />
