Capoeira is over....for this year.

Hi Everybody!

Capoeira is over for this term.... ohhh .... but it will come back and with even more strength! Probably next year, around the 11th Jan but we'll see.

I'd like to thank everybody for bringing your good energy and sharing it. This Monday's roda was very nice. You can see the pictures in the album below. Big thanks to Carol who cooked this AMAZING feijoada. Thanks again as well for your contributions (we managed to get out of red numbers :-) )  

And last but not least,  special thanks to Paul for sharing so much with us.

Have a merry Christmas and see you next year.

Roda and Feijoada

Friday, December 11, 2009

Next week: Feijoada and Rodas!!!!!!! Come, play, watch and eat!

Christmas is cold and approaching and next week is the last week for the Capoeira Angola Cambridge Society, so let's make it special. Come to watch the Roda (skip to min 3 to see the game) and eat Feijoada even if you don't play. Invite friends along! Everybody is welcome!

Monday: Movements session (19h30-20h30) + Roda (20h30-21h) + Feijoada after the roda (very nice food very typical from Brazil). The typical is a meat and beans stew with rice but we'll do some for vegetarians as well.
Wednesday: Normal class with Roda at the end as well.

Hope to see you there!

New Material!!!!! Super music!

Ey everybody,

We've got 4 nice berimbaus and a shiny silver pandeiro. All thanks to the Darwin College Student Association which managed to find some funding for us. We've got as well a brand new ghetto blaster.

The berimbaus are a gunga, a medio, and 2 violas. The pandeiro is synthetic skin and a bit heavy but sounds very good! With all that and some other instruments we have, we can set a bateria (orchestra) and do proper music sessions!

There are as well proper drums in both training spaces: conga at Darwin and proper atabaque at the Romsey Mill Centre.

All you need is good energy! (and some lyrics learned by heart if you can ;) )

Next week

Hi all,

Next Monday (7th Dec) there is no session. We thought about going to support Paul and go to see Pressure Drop. If you fancy joining, drop an email and we'll check whether there are still some tickets available.

Next Wednesday (9th Dec), session at Romsey Mill Centre @ 18h30.

Have a nice weekend
