News about the FICA Conference in September

A message about the annual FICA international conference that will be held in Chicago this year:

there have been a few changes to our conference list of guests:

- unfortunately m. bigo won't be joining us this time around due to the burocracy of obtaining a visa to come to the united states. we hope to have him around in the near future.

- on the other hand, we are very excited to share the new and BIG announcement: that M. VIRGILIO from Ilheus will be making his first visit to the united states and will be joining us for our encounter. As if that is not enough, none other than M. JOAO GRANDE will also be making his first appearance at a FICA conference since 1998. This will be the FIRST time these two mestres from the old school generation will meet outside brasil!!

so we are very blessed that we can add these two great mestres to our already great line up of guests and we hope all of you can join us to experience what will be the biggest capoeira angola encounter in the midwest ever!

please let us know if you have any questions and be sure to check our site for information and registration.
