Description: Candomblé at Rio da Rãs Quilombo , Bom Jesus da Lapa , Bahia State , Brazil . African originated or Afro Brazilian religion , practiced chiefly in Brazil by the " povo de santo " ( people of saint ) . The rituals involve the possession of the initiated by Orishas , offerings and sacrifices of the mineral , vegetable and animal kingdom , healing , dancing / trance and percussion . Candomblé draws inspiration from a variety of people of the African Diaspora , but it mainly features aspects of Yoruba orisha veneration . A quilombo is a Brazilian hinterland settlement founded by people of African origin . Most of the inhabitants of quilombos were escaped former slaves and , in some cases , a minority of marginalised non slave Brazilians that faced oppression during colonization .
