 Encontro de Bambas 2012


FOR FIRST TIME CAPOEIRISTAS

The Batizado is capoeira’s culminating event; it is a festival of culture, a celebration of music, it is your formal initiation into the World of Capoeira as a member of Sinha.

But enough of rhetoric, this is what participating in a Batizado is actually like:

You will arrive Friday night and be blown away by the talent of capoeiristas from around the world. Their styles will be different but you may find someone at the very same level as yourself. The energy and music will be overwhelming and you will realize what we practice for.

On Saturday, you will attend workshops taught by other capoeira teachers. You will get a chance to see how other schools are taught and will learn more capoeira in one day than you ever have before.

On Sunday you will experience the ritual of the batizado, you will become a member of the capoeira community for life.

FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC

Your invitation to view the works of Sinha is an opportunity to experience the underground culture of capoeira.

You will witness the traditional ceremony; live Afro-Brazilian music and a style of movement that blurs the line between fight and dance. Unlike any performance you have seen, the art form you will experience will be complete improvisation. Performers will flow to the rhythm of music and respond to their opponents in ways unrehearsed.

The best time to arrive at the Sinha Capoeira Batizado is on Sunday between 12:00pm and 3:00pm

FOR OUT OF STATE GUESTS

Thank you for being a part of our celebration. We understand that it took time and energy for you to be here and would like to make your experience with us as pleasant as possible.  PLEASE SEND YOUR FLIGHT AND ARRIVAL INFORMATION TO SINHACAPOEIRA@HOTMAIL.COM
