The kanzo senp, or simple kanzo, is a kanzo ceremony in which only
Hounsi Kanzos are produced. As you now know, the backbone of a Vodou House is it's hounsis. For that reason, this
version of the kanzo is the one held most often.
The majority of any Vodou house is made up of initiates at the rank of hounsi
kanzo. These initiates sing for the choir, dance during ceremonies, and do any other number of tasks that may be presented
to them. In some Houses, certain areas of the peristyle may be restricted to them. Alternatively, they may also
be only allowed entrance should they be accompanied by a higher ranking member.
The kanzo senp is just like a regular kanzo, but it is shorter. There isn't
much more to describe in the differences. Often the candidates that are going to be made hounsis will not bat ge.
This ceremony may be shortened to one night or not held at all.
There ceremonies will start with the baths, and they will then be secluded
in the djevo. The Leve Kanzo will be conducted as well as the brule kanzo, the leve kanzo and the baptem.
This usually takes the period of a week. They will then observe their
41 days, completing thus their initiation. They will later on dessan kolye and feed them.
