Black witchcraft

“Macumba” on the Brazilian Sinter label. This is one of the most amazing covers. A real voodoo ritual complete with the rooster blood letting, the live snake, the priestess and her pipe and most disturbingly the man in a trance licking the blood from his hand. I’m spooked to even be writing about it. Curses!
