Babaylanismo - Babaylans work with diwata and their abyan (spirit allies).

Vodun (voodoo) - Houngans (high priest) and mambo (high priestess) work with Loas (Papa Legba is one of them).

Kimbanda - Kimbanderos work with Exu and Pombagira.

Curandero- a folk healer who specializes in healing and limpia. The practitioner has a strong bond with plant spirits.

Ayahuascero-  A shaman who can brew ayahuasca, set up a sacred space, serve the ayahuasca, sing ikaros, and run ayahuasca ceremony.

I met a Peruvian ayahuacera and also a curandera. She works with the plant spirits. Prior to her ceremony, she set-up a sacred space by fumigating the space with palo santo and tobacco after that she invokes her plant spirit allies using chakapa ( Resembles like bamboo leaves and use as a rattle ) and ikaro ( song ). Before the participants consume the brew ( ayahuasca ), she blows tobacco smoke in the brew to cleanse it. She uses tobacco or mapacho in cleansing and healing. She invokes the tobacco spirit to help her in healing and cleansing....

Babaylan- who can perform batak dungan, tupad, tuos and luya divination. Babaylans are considered daluyan ( channel ).

I met a babaylan who uses luya in divination. Babaylans do this divination before performing batak dungan and tupad. The result of the reading will reveal what kind of offering the ubay ( spirit guide ) will accept and it can also be used to diagnose spiritual illness.

Mananambal/ albularyo- I met a lot of them and they have different specialties and techniques in healing. Most of them perform pangalap or panagpuros ( collecting herbs and implements which are use in healing. It starts after Ash Wednesday and it ends in Holy Friday ).

Hoodoo- also known as conjure or rootworking. It's a folk magic practice that involves the use of herbs, roots, herbal washes, potions, oils, powders, petitioning saints, bible and candles. Chants are not used in Hoodoo, instead scriptures or psalms in the bible are used. I think hoodoo is a product of syncretism ( It was influenced by Christianism, European folk magic, grimoire, Kabbalah, Native american shamanism and African spiritual traditions and beliefs ).
