Every February two events take place in Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, that have African influences at their heart – the Fiesta de Llemanja, a tribute to the sea goddess (or Orixá) from the Afro-Brazilian religion Umbanda which made its way across the Brazil-Uruguay border in the 1960s – and ‘Las Llamadas’ (‘The Calls’), a carnival of Candombe, a traditional Afro-Uruguayan rhythm.
