Music is an essential part of Capoeira tradition. Combining singing with percussion, Capoeira music provides energy and rhythm to the game. Tales are told through songs sung in Portuguese, which convey Brasilian history and the history of Capoeira.
Shortly speaking, Capoeira is a unique African-Brazilian martial art, a blend of sport, martial arts skills, dance, folklore, music, theatre and philosophy. All those elements are connected by the rhythms of percussion instruments such as the atabake and berimbau.
Considering that everyone is able to learn this art, and express it in a unique manner, we start our experience at the Angola Capoeira Association, either at Pelourinho historical center or at the Santo Antonio do Carmo Fort. We’ll meet the Master that will tell us more about the tradition. He will give us 1 hour lesson, showing all the physical and mental benefits that this art promotes. We’ll learn and understand basic techniques to take advantage in our own lives.
