To bring in the new year, a Capoeira Angola group in Los Angeles held a New Years Roda.

Capoeira Angola is a martial art from Brazil that originated in Angola, Africa. "Roda" means "ring" in portuguese, and a "roda" is when a bunch of capoeiristas gather to "play capoeira". Participants take turns playing instruments, singing, and getting in the ring.

I tried to emulate a "City of God"-esque look in this short piece: a warm, saturated, high contrast look. If you haven't seen that movie, do it! It's one of the best to come out of Brazil.
