JUNE 2005: Capoeira
Back in Belo Horizonte, I encountered a group of capoeira dancers in Parque Municipal (Municipal Park). The dancers were accompanied by typical music instruments, among which the berimbau. One by one, the dancers entered the circle to challenge their friends already dancing in the circle. The audience clearly enjoyed their acrobatic and rhythmic performances. I was amazed to watch a teenager dancing with the same acrobatic skills as his adult opponents.
