Capoeira



Still on Avenida Paulista.

Capoeira is the mixture of martial art, dance, fight, popular music/culture, and a game/play. It's been created by African slaves brought to Brazil and their descendents. It's all about quick, complicated moves, frequently close to the floor and made upside-down, almost like acrobacies. It's not like any other fight because you kind of dance to music.
