Belo Horizonte, 1964: M Pastinha is in Town

Here is a 1964 announcement from O Diário newspaper of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais.
Capoeira Que É Bom Não Cai

Capoeira has already arrived

The Night of International Folklore begins tomorrow. The night was Dom Serafim’s good idea. Mestre Pastinha, king of the capoeiristas of Bahia de Todos os Santos, is already in the city with his group of capoeiras. Mestre Pastinha will do presentations on the 19th, 20th and 21st of this month, at 7:00 pm in the gymnasium of the Minas Tênis Clube. And the money raised will be used towards the construction of a new building at the Catholic University of Minas Gerais, which will be celebrating its anniversary this month.
