ENCONTRO DE BAMBAS 2022

 

 

 

Please come join us in our Celebration!

A three day celebration full of Capoeira workshops and Rodas, kids games and presentations.  Lots of fun for everyone! See this amazing art that has grown so much around the world. Come support your friends and family. And if you have never seen or tried Capoeira, maybe you are a Capoeirista and just don’t know it yet!

WHERE:  Boston Massachusetts

WHEN:  October 21st through October 23rd, 2022

FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC COMING TO SUNDAY BATIZADO

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

You will witness the traditional Roda 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 Batizado on Sunday is between 1:00pm and 2:00pm

 FOR FIRST TIME CAPOEIRISTAS

The Batizado is capoeira’s culminating event; it is a festival of culture, a celebration of music.

This 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.
