Initiative of Prof. Samuka da Índia & his students, Ginga Saroba is a Capoeira group based in Auroville / Pondicherry / Chennai and a branch of the Ginga Nagô (Brazil / France / Spain / Senegal / India) group led by Mestre Branco (Brazil / France).
Prof. Samuka da Índia started learning Capoeira in 2000 with Mestre Branco. He is sharing his knowledge of capoeira movement, history, tradition, music & culture with Auroville community continuously since 2007.
