Capoeira Angola: Celebrating Afro-Brazilian Traditions

December 2, 2023

Capoeira is an African cultural art of resistance from Brasil. As you learn and develop respect for the customs, ancestors, and masters of capoeira, you will discover how what you put into capoeira will help you succeed in maximizing your own full potential. Capoeira Angola has a diverse history from Bahia and many unique strategies have developed over the past century. We derive our lineage from the area of “Cidade Baixa” of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Our strategies and techniques have been passed down from generation to generation, from master to disciple. Our ancestral lineage can be traced through many great masters: my master, Grande Mestre Nô; his masters, Grande Mestres Zeca do Uruguai, Pirro, Cutica, and Nilton; and Grande Mestre Waldemar da Liberdade.

All Saturday Family Concerts are FREE for ages 22 and under.
