In 2005, he visit Sweden for his first time together with two young capoeiristas Adjair & Yuka from Massaranduba, an unprivileged neighborhood in Salvador to talk about capoeira and young people from the neighborhood.

Aloan is a student of Mestre Valmir and trains as well as teaches at FICA Bahia in Salvador. Aloan, despite his young age, is a well-known capoeirista. He grew up surrounded by capoeira and started to teach in 2005. Aloan is a responsible leader and a very good berimbau teacher. Aloan visited Stockholm from February to March and just returned to Stockholm to participate in Karnevalsommar – Rhythm against violence.
