A woman faints as part of a trance during a Gaga ceremony in a batey, or a village originally created by workers around sugar plantations, called Batey La Higuera, near La Romana April 18, 2014. The ceremony, which is a combination of Santeria, Voodoo and Christianity beliefs that is called Gaga and originated in Haiti, is held during Lent and Holy Week especially in areas near sugar cane plantations.
