Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian mix of dance, fight, music, song, tradition, theatre, and more. The game of capoeira is played in a circle or ‘roda’ to the sound of the ‘bateria’ (a sort of capoeira orchestra). A Capoeira Angola bateria has the following instruments: Berimbau (gunga, media e viola), Pandeiro, Agogo, Reco-reco and Atabaque. The bateria plays the music and sing the songs which give rhythm and energy to the players. Nowadays, people from all over the world, and from all different backgrounds practice capoeira, and it is an excellent way to keep fit, develop self-confidence and meet new friends. We believe the best way to learn what capoeira is, is to experience it for yourself through Capoeira classes, when practising Capoeira Angola, it is important to learn about and respect its history and traditions. Capoeira’s good for your body, mind and soul.
