Ava Kay Jones is an ordained Voodoo and Yoruba Priestess and a leading spokesperson for Voodoo and related African religious culture. She is also the lead performer and principal dancer in the Voodoo Macumba Dance Ensemble.
Born in New Orleans on Halloween, it seemed almost fated that Ava Kay should become both a Voodoo Priestess and a devout Catholic. In addition, she is also an actress, lecturer, author, teacher of foreign languages and a law school graduate.
Ava Kay has performed both locally and internationally. She has been a favorite at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for over 30 years, and has lectured on the “Sacred Arts of Haitian Voodoo” at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Her appearance on Unsolved Mysteries was viewed by 33 million people.
Ava Kay Jones works exclusively through Judith Faye Entertainment and is available for entertaining at your event alone, with the Voodoo Macumba Dance Ensemble or with her snake, Bubbles. Whether she is doing an elaborate Stage Performance, Interactive Group Entertainment, Celebrity Hostessing or strolling through the crowd telling stories and handing out Gris-Gris bags and Voodoo dolls you can make sure your guests will never forget this remarkable and magnetic lady.
“Voodoo is the religion and the word Voodoo means spirit, deity and God. The Creator of the Universe.” —Ava Kay Jones
