At one point after listening many times to Junior Wells' "Hoodoo Man" and Muddy Waters' more well known "I got my mojo working," I did a little research to discover just what a mojo or a "mojo hand" was supposed to be, and why you had to go down to Luziana to get one, and what John dekonkeroo had to do with it. Apparently a mojo hand is a spice bag that gives power or luck to the wearer and fends off evil spirits, and John the Conquerer root is one of the herbs included in the bag.

Welcome!
