CACHOEIRA, BRAZIL - AUGUST 17:  A worshipper dances dressed as the goddess Iansa after falling into a trance during a Candomble ceremony on August 17, 2014 in Cachoeira, Brazil. Candomble is an Afro-Brazilian religion whose practitioners often fall into trances during ceremonies and believe they have become possessed by gods, or orixas. The roots of the religion came to Brazil via African slaves while eventually incorporating elements of Catholicism. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.
