Ghede Nimbo

The most benevolent of the Loa of the Dead, powerful in healing and as protector of children as well as being a great jester.

Two of his best-known titles are Brav’ Ghede and Ghede Nimbo.

The title Nimbo relates him to the Ndemba Society, an African cult whose mysteries are concerned with death and resurrection.

There are a considerable number of Ghede Loa, and their position is generally held to be between Rada and Petro.
