A week of sunshine and Capoeira, with the ACAMCAB capoeira festival in Bordeaux.
with my favourite Mestre's, Mestres Cameleao (Marseille) Mestre Claudio (Salvador)
and Mestre Perna Longa (NY)And others, including
my very own inspirational teacher from Scotland 'Dion Draga'
who's capoeira name literally means 'the joker'- Da Ali G of the Capoeira world.
Capoeira is the most fascinating combination of music and dance.
The rhythms and the energy of the group are so important,
it is an all social affair with the crowd encouraging the play between two individuals,
through song and music. For the week we practice and perform for the public within
the many beautiful squares around Bordeaux town centre
And through the night we play and dance the big band samba. The traditional Maracatu EscÃ´cia
and muito samba enredos to perfection.
with Caphrinias and traditional food accompaniment!
Entertainment and play, song and dance, with the many fine people who had gathered
from around the world.
Mind, Body and spirit food - I recommend :)
May your chapas be beuatifull bananarias be very nice!!
