This past Saturday, Barro Vermelho Capoeira (Washington DC) joined forces with Grupo Candeias (Alexandria VA) for an exhibition all about Brazil at American University.

A project of AU student Mason Drastal, Brazil: An Exhibition On South America’s Emerging Powerhouse featured a talk about Afro-Brazilian Educational Justice by Dr. Clarence Lusane, live bossa nova music by Para Ti, a samba performance from our friends at Zezeh Brazil, and a participatory demonstration from Barro Vermelho and Grupo Candeias!

We had a great time talking to AU students and teaching them about the tradition of capoeira and its connection to the history and culture of Brazil. Remember, students – your first class is free! Stay tuned here and on Facebook for news about our new weekday classes.

We would like to thank Grupo Candeias VA and Mason Drastal for helping us and allowing us to exhibit! Also a special thank-you to students Ashley and Dante for joining Contra Mestre Bomba in the demonstration.
