It is said that Oshun went to a drum festival one day and fell in love with the king-dancer Shango, god of lightning & thunder.
According to the Yoruba elders, Oshun is the "unseen mother present at every gathering", because Oshun is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction.
