March is recognized as the time for everyone to remember the political role of women inbuilding a society with equal rights. In the world of Capoeira many groups take advantage of this moment to celebrate and reinforce the presence of women and their role in Capoeira. For the first time in London many different groups will be together doing the same thing.
Amazonas, Kabula, Marazul and Capoeira Angola London are offering this opportunity for the London Capoeira Community. It is not a event only for women. It is a event for Capoeristas and all the Community which feels that Capoeira movement is important. We will be connected with the old philosophy of Capoeira. Capoeira is for women, men and girls and boys. Come to visit us on the 4th and 5th of March. We will be together playing, singing, discussing, chatting, and celebrating.
