PETRO

Also known as PETWO

A previously unseen form of Loa, until a Spanish-American slave decided to drink a cocktail of gunpowder and rum.

Petro is like techno Voodoo - fast off-beat drums, exagerated body movements and bright colors. The only thing missing are glow sticks, but that part is cunningly recreated by dousing oneself with rum and jumping through a fire.

The ritual also involves the sacrifice of goats or roosters, the blood of which is smeared on the body, possibly to extinguish the flames. Entry fees are high too.

Unless you like your spirits violent, aggressive and unpredictable, i suggest you steer well clear of Petro.
