Mestre Joãozinho da Figueira

Starting a new phase of our work in London, inaugurating a new space, strengthened by the energy of 2006, we are very pleased to have a very special guest to bring Axé to the new terreiro. We are sure that the energy will be as strong as before when the Capoeira ritual starts in yet another corner of this cosmopolitan city in the UK.

We began our programme for 2007 with the strength and energy of Capoeira Angola, filled with the malícia and ability of Marcelo Angoleiro (Capoeira Angola London).

Now it’s time for us to be priviledged with the experience, simplicity, objectivity and wisdom of our brother Polaco.

Capoeirista, teacher, educator, master of perception and absolute understanding of the language of capoeira, Polaco is one of the people with whom you can open up your heart, for a good chat, vadiagem and to share experiences.

He is everybody’s friend, but has many stories that we don’t yet know. This special programme we will definitely provide the opportunity to discover the experiences of this carioca who talks and sings well, who plays using his body, his soul and his spirit, filled with the pleasure and happiness of being a capoeirista.

We hope to see everyone for this week’s Sexta do Axé, for another ritual and meeting of Capoeira.

Grande Axé!
Joãozinho da Figueira
