    Learn to Play Capoeira Music

    Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form created by slaves in colonial Brazil. It combined ancient rituals and modern creativity into a rich fabric of motion, percussion, and song. A typical capoeira "game" includes traditional music, precise kicks, evasive defense moves, and breathtaking acrobatics. In this class you will have the opportunity to learn to play the instruments of the capoeira orchestra or "bateria". You will also learn about the berimbau rhythms and song. In the words of one of the renowned masters, capoeira is "a dance that is a fight and a fight that is a dance." Your rhythm is an important component of bringing the whole production together. As anyone who has seen capoeira can attest to, there is nothing else in the world like it.
