African Enslaved Resistance Songs from Brazil

Learn the songs which inspire the energy for the African Brazilian martial dance of capoeira. Born in the oppression of slavery and the resistance of the quilombos, capoeira songs are rich with metaphor and hidden meanings, often secretly guiding the dance fighters.

Academia de Capoeira Mundo is an authentic capoeira group with direct historical links. Capoeira provides you with health, happiness, music and mastery of your own body. Keep fit, be Flexible, be Fabulous.

Our style is Contemporary Capoeira, an evolving style which incorporates Capoeira Angola and elements from breaking, acrobatics and many other martial arts.
