    Subject: 4th Capoeira Meeting in Copenhagen: 8 Capoeira Plus events

    Hi everybody,
    This year we’re happy to announce our friend contra-mestre Forró has agreed to offer training in the dance Coco also known as Coco de Umbigada. According to tradition the dance has it’s origins in slaves breaking coconuts for there dinner. And it’s great fun.
    We’re also happy to announce contra-mestre Forró has agreed to repeat his Jongo training from last year. Jongo is another popular Brazilian dance with its roots among coffee workers (slaves) in the Rio area. When slavery was abolished the slaves moved to Rio bringing the dance. Jongo is considered to be an early form of Samba.
    This is just two of the 8 Capoeira Plus events were hosting during the 4th Capoeira Meeting in Copenhagen.

    See films about Coco, Jongo and the other Capoeira Plus events on the program:

    And do remember the Brazilian party: Sambatime Saturday 21st of March 2009 we’re pulling all the stops and going partying at Operaen in Christiania – Brazilian style.
