Near the falls, men and women sell candles, blue and white beads represent the loas and images of Our Lady of Miracles. The drums play syncopated rhythms, and some people go into a trance, talking loudly and moving frantically. Beyond the stereotypes, which describe pure voodoo as black magic rituals with dolls, animal sacrifices and undead, this is basically a peaceful religion, which the rites are a mystical experience for the uninitiated. There is also a voodoo Congo, distinguished by the use of curses, evil eyes and "dusts evil." Over 60 million people practice voodoo worldwide. The features of this religion come from an animist culture of African people, the Yoruba, from Nigeria, Benin, and Togo.
