Mestre Joãozinho da Figueira

To everyone involved in the Capoeira Cultural Integration Movement in London – On Saturday December 9th, we will be organising an (extra) event, in an attempt to provide everyone with more information about the history of capoeira and Afro-Brazilian culture as a whole.

We will be taking advantage of the presence in Europe of Mestre KK Bonates from Amazonia, who will show some videos about various aspects of Afro-brazilian culture including Jongo, batuque and a very special video, which shows Mestre Pastinha playing capoeira many years ago.

Mestre KK Bonates has been doing research into Afro-brazilian culture for almost 30 years, in particular focussing on capoeira. He is the author of the book ‘A Iuna Mandingueira’, published in several languages, and is already preparing his next book which will be published soon. He is a botanist and researcher at INPA – the Brazilian National Amazonian Research Institute.

You will be able to get much more information by coming along to this event!

After the videos there will be a short talk, and a question and answer session.

Hope to see you there!
