Filhos de Bimba School of Capoeira | Dinner and Cultural show
Please join us for an inspiring evening of dance and Capoeira performances to traditional Brazilian music, dinner and an exciting raffle! Celebrate Brazilian culture by supporting the work of the Filhos de Bimba School of Capoeira in the Bay Area. We focus on the methodology and traditions of Capoeira Regional set forth by Mestre Bimba, the founder of modern Capoeira.
You will be transported to the streets of Brazil while enjoying a delicious dinner. Experience the rich and diverse culture of Brazil through the rhythmic music of the berimbau and other traditional instruments, performances of Puxada de Rede, the dance celebrating the fishermen's daily life, and Maculele, a dramatic and high-energy mock-combat dance using grimas (sticks).
After dinner, will be the night's featured entertainment, a Capoeira Roda (demonstration) with Professor Malandro, his students and special guests.
Throughout the evening you may purchase raffle tickets for the chance to win many exciting prizes including Brazilian cultural artifacts, local handicrafts, Brazilian music lessons, Capoeira music cds, dvds and more!
