LUUSAH TEISH Author of Jambalaya: The Natural Woman's Book of Personal Charms & Practical Rituals. Iwa-pele, is an excellent introduction to Ifa religion. The modern Yoruba accent in this book has gracefully demonstrated Fatunmbi's remarkable talent for expression quintessential African religion, which I agree to.
