Carlos Buby is a Babalorix? (Candombl? sacerdot) born from a Catholic family in the countryside of the state of Alagoas. At age 7, he and his family moved to Sao Paulo. As a young man, he had his musical awakening, having won, in 1967, the first and third prizes at a traditional Brazilian music festival, for two songs which were later censored by the dictactorial regime. This caused him tremendous frustration, which led him to engage in Umbanda looking for answers to existential and spiritual matters. He eventually gave up his musical career, turning down promising contracts with major record labels, in order to live his life by the guidance of Caboclo Guaracy, the spiritual entity which guided him. Carlos Buby has always been an avid investigator of natural phenomena, and in 1973 he founded Templo Guaracy, and since then has been the head of all 14 temples in Brazil, Europe (Portugal, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium) and North America (California, New York, Washingtonand Canada). Over the years, he has developed an elaborate cosmogonic model based on the African-Brazilian tradition, which sheds a light on the understanding of the dynamics of life on Earth. He has recently consolidated the principles that gave rise to Guaracyan philosophy, using a humanistic, universal, apolitical and non-religious approach. ================================== About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
