CapoeirAsia 2014

For the first time organized, CapoeirAsia happened this November in Goa, Cavelossim beach. The event organized by  Mestre Cueca & CDO Mumbai was aiming to gather capoeiristas from all over Asia to a unique event of 6 days.

Starting November 4th the week long festival brought more than 20 Mestre & Contra-Mestre from Brazil, Israel & Russia to India. Among them: Mestre Suassuna (founder of CDO), Mestre Edan, Mestre Cueca, Mestre Cabello, Mestre Ferradura, Mestre Esquilo, Mestre Papa-Leguas, Mestre Surfista, Mestre Noa… Around them, over 200 capoeiristas who came from all over the world (Israel, Russia, India, UK, Mexico,…) and Auroville :p to be part of this unique event.

The festival was filled with workshop spread over different physical zones. One could choose an activity (Fighting fundamentals, Capoeira Angola, Music Capoeira, HydroCapoeira, Batucada, Samba, Bimba throws, Acrobatics…) or an adapted level for the Capoeira classes (beginner, intermediate, advanced). In between the classes rodas, forro classes, shows and parties where organized just in case we would get bored…

At the end of the night, we would return to the rest zone in order to start fresh for our next day filled with workshops.

If you were around or not, this memorable event was definitely something to not miss. Thanks Mestre Cueca & Professor Baba for organizing and welcoming us.
