This year’s theme is “Viva Bahia!”. Bahia, also known as Bahia de Todos os Santos, was the cradle of capoeira and the mecca for many of the great Masters and practitioners of the art. It is where Mestre Bimba, the creator of Capoeira Regional, was born. It is where Mestre Pastinha, the great guardian of capoeira Angola lived and died. It is where Mestre Waldemar da Paixao, one of capoeira history’s greatest musicians lived and played. Bahia is the land of some of the oldest capoeira history in the world. Aside from capoeira history, Bahia also has some powerful world history. It is the port where the slaves that were brought from Africa, 40% of all slaves passed through the Bahia. It is also a place where much of the resistance and survival of the oppressed conquered. Bahia is truly a mystical, magical place, with all its beautiful colors, music, and views. This year we honor Bahia’s magic and history here in our home. We hope you will join us!
Mestre Chuvisquinho and the entire Sinha’ Capoeira are happy to invite you to honor Bahia in Boston, Massachusetts!
