CAPOEIRA AT FLOR DO CÉU

img_4427_edited

Leave it to the Brazilians to turn a fight into a dance: Capoeira is an African-Brazilian fight-dance and martial art created by enslaved Africans during the 16th Century. Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing, and sparring in pairs in the center of the circle.
