This was awesome! I especially liked that the length of the video lent itself to ‘information rich’, but it was short enough that I just put it right on now.
I hope the host does a follow up, maybe going into when and how the music that goes along with capoeira came to be part of it.
Also, kind of felt like a bona fide wonderful thing, which was much needed this Friday.


Thanks for sharing! I watched some Dambe the other day and this will help grow my curiosity.


From Africa to the Americas, from here to the world. It was a crime, but the laws have changed. Now I hope these martial arts and the people who created them get the respect they deserve.
