Seeking freedom from sugar plantation masters, African slaves on the island of Hispaniola escaped into the mountains and jungles to build free societies. Five hundred years later their magic-religious celebrations and customs survive in the Dominican Republic. “Cimarron Spirit” explores these traditions, that mix African and European traditions and create a unique symbiosis between these cultures.
