New York City: Celebrate M Pastinha with M João Grande

This looks like an amazing event! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about the recent history of capoeira in Brazil with someone who lived it, as well as someone who pioneered the teaching of Capoeira Angola in the US. Hopefully there will be a lot of good questions (start thinking now, my friends...)
