Esu is a popular African deity of thousands of years and we might never know its exact origin. But it is possible to understand how Esu went from being a God in Africa to becoming the Devil in Brazil. This tragic story, that passes through colonization and slavery, has not ended yet. “Esu & The Universe” follows the complex path of a culture turned into resistance over the course of several centuries.
