Capoeira is more than just a sport. It is a passion, a way of life.
In Europe several Brazilian 'Mestres' travel around from city to city and teach children and adults their unbelievable skills.
Everybody, young and old, practices this during the 6 hours of 'Roda'. Alone and together.
The beauty of capoeira is the lack of competition. Everybody is the same and part of the whole group. Everybody can learn from each other. Resulting in a positive drive and trance on traditional Brazilian sounds.
Utrecht, december 2011.
