ABADA Capoeira demonstration

Capoeira (pronounced ka-poo-eyh-da) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art self-defense form that incorporates acrobatics, dance, percussion, and songs in a rhythmic dialogue of body, mind, and spirit.  It is a communal game in which two opponents play each other inside a circle, formed by the other players who create rhythm for the game by clapping, singing and playing traditional instruments.

Founded in 1991, by master capoeira artist Márcia Treidler "Mestranda Cigarra," ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco works to preserve, develop, and share capoeira with integrity, and to use capoeira to ignite positive change in individuals and in communities. 

Programs celebrating one of the many cultures that make up San Francisco, during their time of special recognition.

This event is part of ¡Viva! San Francisco Public Library's Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
