About Arole Cultural
Much more than magic recipe books, our titles propose a reflection on the universe of Orishas - the African Gods fo Nature -, the spiritual culture and practices of the diaspora, the black African ethos reconstructed on Brazilian soil and the experiences of its participants.
Our authors are part of this universe: religious leaders and representatives who, through their participation in the day-to-day life of their communities, interact with the wider society and bring the experiences lived within the religious temples in their skin and in their words.
For all these reasons, we invite you to learn more about our works and projects and also to be part of this journey with us, going beyond the walls of religious temples, promoting and expanding the culture of tolerance and peace in such turbulent times.
