evohé! A cry of joy
I will tell you a little story that describes well the why and the origin of the name Evohé.
evohé was a ceremonial cheer that echoed the priestesses in the Bacchanalia, in honor of Bacchus (Roman mythological god of wine) and Dionysus (the Greek equivalent).
The early cult was exclusively by women for women, in memory of our mother Eve. Introduced into Rome from the Magna Grecia, the bacchanalia were held in secret and took place five times a month. In Greece, the Bacchae were called Eva, also derived from evohé. Today, evohé means also ovation.
This ancient word is understood and spelled the same in all countries where there has been a historical influence of Greece and Rome.
Current carnivals are a legacy of these orgies. In Brazil, evohé is a cry of joy.
Could we find a word with more poetry and meaning to our project?
evohé, a cheer, a toast to life, a standing ovation. The joy of celebrating. A secret celebration, created by women, priestesses who called Eva. And finally, in evohé, we saw our names drawn, Eva and Olga. Can we ask for more?
May the celebration a success! evohé!
