Caopeira is a 4 century old Brazilian art. Elaborated by African slaves deported to Brazil, Capoeira is very widespread in Brazil. Listening to the music of the Berimbau, people gather within the Roda, the circle: acrobatics, kicks, dodges, feints and moving. Combinations get the Roda moving and sets it on fire.
