Summer Event in the Vale do Capão

Sowing 2008
5th International Encounter
Capoeira Angola
July 24 - August 3

Between mountains and rivers, streams, waterfalls, and native vegetation, the Vale do Capão is certainly one of the most exuberant regions of Brazil. During this event, our primary objective is to live among the elements of the essence of nature and the naturalness of the movements and fundamentals of Capoeira Angola, honoring the traditional knowledge, feeling the natural reflections of our bodies and our adaptability to the natural environment. In Salvador, we will visit the most renowned mestres to get to know their schools and teachings. Respecting the differences in the world of Capoeira Angola is our greatest challenge. The event is open to all interested. Mestres and friends will participate so that we can play, exchange information, and increase our understandings. All are invited. It will be a pleasure to welcome you into our house.
