Capoeira Angola Quintal
WHO / WHAT / HOW
Capoeira is an acrobatic, dance-like martial art, originating from Brazilian slaves. BAMM.tv was lucky enough to capture a session at The Center SF.
This capoeira music was recorded live at The San Francisco Capoeira Center, home of Capoeira Angola Quintal San Francisco. This film of a live capoeira album recording is the first ever of its kind, led by Mestre Ombrinho and Contra-Mestre Omi.
"Capoeira Angola is the traditional form of capoeira that emphasizes wisdom over force, strategy over speed. It is said that capoeiristas are like chameleons, blending and adapting to their environment. The best capoeiristas appear calm when they play. Their game flows without resistance and defies gravity — and at the right moment, they strike." - Mestre Ombrinho.
